Admin Menu Tree Page View


Note: This plugin has changed ownership and it will be updated soon with WordPress compatibility changes, JavaScript tweaks and new PHP requirements. Stay tuned!

The Admin Menu Tree Page View WordPress plugin adds a page tree to all your pages – directly accessible in the admin menu. This way all your pages will be available within just one click, no matter where you are in the admin area.

You can also add pages directly in the tree and you can quickly find your pages by using the search box.

Top features

  • Change the order of your pages with drag-and-drop
  • View all your pages – no matter where in the admin you are
  • View the page hierarchy/the tree structure of your pages
  • Add pages directly after or inside another post – no need to first create the post and then select the parent of the page
  • Adds link to view a page directly from the admin menu – you don’t have to first edit the post and from that page click the view link

Works perfect in CMS-like WordPress installations with lots of pages in a tree hierarchy.

If you want a tree with all your pages, but don’t want it visible all the time, please check out CMS Tree Page View.


The plugin is translated into these languages:

  • Spanish (thanks to Andrew Kurtis/WebHostingHub)
  • Slovak translation (thanks Branco)
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Swedish


  • You can expand/collapse sub-pages. Keeps the meny compact, but gives you the option to instantly dig deep down the page hierarchy.
  • Search your pages in real time. Try it; it's wonderful! 😉
  • Quickly add single or multiple pages. Great for setting up the structure for a new site.


  1. Upload the folder “admin-menu-tree-page-view” to “/wp-content/plugins/”
  2. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress
  3. Done!

Now the tree with the pages will be visible in the admin menu to the left.

We love the simplicity of this plugin. We use it on all client websites and it simplifies the navigation and work process tremendously. The support from the new developer is also excellent, they respond to requests quickly and easily. 5 stars are actually not enough 🙂

This plugin saves A LOT of time looking for a post or page. The search results for a page are instant allowing you to click edit or view very quickly, rather than using the wordpress search and waiting - especially if you have 100's of pages/posts. Saved a lot of time when editing multiple pages. Works with version 5.5x (or at least it does with my installations).

One of my clients has over a hundred pages on her site, and this little fly-out menu makes finding the one I need to update much more of a breeze than it used to be. The plugin has been with me on her site for years and is still working with no conflicts as of WordPress version 5.4.2. with 45 other plugins.

  • Fixed: hopefully works better with WPML now.


  • Fixed: forgot to remove console.log at some places. sorry!

  • Tree now always opens up when editing a page, so you will always see the page you’re ediiting.
  • When searching, the parents of a page with a match is opened, so search hits will always be visible.

  • Some CSS changes. The icons and text and smaller now. I think it’s better this way, you can fit so many more pages in the tree now.
