Strictly from a code point of view, it would probably be less complex if only custom ordering was implemented, with a command to apply sorting to child pages when desired.

If both orderings are available, I think each page should have a flag representing which mode it is in. This flag only affects the ordering of any direct child pages. (This means there will need to be some sort of root flag as well). A context menu would provide the option to change from custom to ordered, along with the ability to apply recursively. Creating a new child page automatically inherits the value of the flag of its parent page. > 3/ When index has custom ordering, where do new pages show up - at the > end, in the front, other position ? As close as possible to the current mouse location. If I use the context menu to create a new sub-page, then at the top of all child pages. If I create a new page, then as the next sibling page. > 4/ Should custom sorting depend on list of links in parent page ? > (Either by default or as a plugin) It could be an option, but I don't think it should be a hard dependency. I don't normally have links in my parent pages anyway. Some people may for some reason have links in a page in a different order than how they want to sort the child pages. Brian Allen Vanderburg II
