Swifty Page Manager
Manage your WordPress pages. Like a BOSS.
WordPress handles the pages of your website like blog posts. You can order them alphabetically, by date, by author or by number of responses. Nice for blog posts. Not so much for website pages. Swifty Page Manager shows you how the pages of your WordPress site are positioned and related to each other in a clear pagetree overview.
Add. Move. Remove.
Make sense of your WordPress pages again.
Add a new page and drag-and-drop it in the right position. Need to delete a page? Just click the trash bin icon and you’re done. Made a mistake? No worries. You can always get it back from the trash bin.
Basic page settings
Easy access to what you need most
When you add a page, just give it a short name. This will appear in the main navigation menu of your site. Then give it a title. That’s the short line of text that will appear blue in Google. Very important to put the main keyword in there.
Advanced page settings
Some extra’s. When you know what you are doing.
Neatly tucked away behind the “More” button you will find things like the page URL. It is generated automatically. But if you want, you can change the slug here. And you can change the status from draft to published and back.

Built in navigation
Your page-tree is your site’s navigation menu
Normally in WP you create pages in one spot. And then define the menu somewhere else. Mistakes are easily made. It’s easy to forget to add a new page to the site menu. But not with Swifty Page Manager. Because Swifty Site Designer makes sure your site menu is exactly what your page tree overview looks like.
Now you see me.
Now you don’t.
Show or hide a page in the navigation menu.
Swifty Page Manager works closely together with the Swifty Site Designer theme. That enables you to create a page for the whole world to see. But also to hide that page from your menu. This is especially helpful for landing pages. You know, when you advertise on facebook or Google and you want the people to ‘land’ on a special page.
Optimized site menu for mobile devices.
There is a special interaction between Swifty Page Manager and the Swifty Site Designer Theme. If you have both, you can decide how your menu should behave. On mobile, one tap on a main menu item opens the submenu. Lot’s of visitors don’t realize they have to tap the main menu item again if they want to go there. This could potentially mean that one of your most important pages does not get the number of visitors it deserves. We solve this problem by adding an extra button in the top of the submenu. This button has the same name as the main menu item by default. And on click goes there. In the Page Manager however you can change the name of this button.
Create your own page types
There is also a special interaction between Swifty Page Manager and the Swifty Content Creator Plugin. If you have both, you can decide – per page – which area’s of that page need to be shown or hidden. This allows you to create special types of pages. Like a landing page. A blog page. Or a product page.
Create the perfect page. Then re-use it as often as you like.
A huge time saver is the ability to make a copy of an entire page. For certain parts of your site, like your blog or your product pages, you may want to use the same type of page layout every time. Just create it once. And then re-use it for the next one. Told ya. Super powers are up for grabs ;-)
