    Description

      With Liferay 7.1 it was decided to provide a full application to administer pages, moving this functionality out of the limited space of the product menu on the left. The Miller columns pattern, popularized by Mac’s finder, was chosen to provide the user experience for this administration.

      The goal of this feature is to provide a second view option which is optimized for simpler sites. This view option will provide a flat list, ordered by page hierarchy. That way it will behave similarly to a fully expanded tree. The addition of this option has been added in response to feedback claiming that for simpler sites, being able to see the whole tree at once is very useful. In order to make this possible in a wider number of cases, the default page size for this view will be of 50 items.

      Note: Feedback has been received requesting adding back a tree widget to navigate the page hierarchy. For now, we have decided that it’s not a good solution from a UX perspective and believe that improving the UX of the Miller columns pattern for complex hierarchies and providing this flat list view for simpler hierarchies is a better solution. However, we will be watching closely the feedback on this matter once these improvements are released and if it’s deemed necessary we will provide an additional visualization option with a tree.
