I’m a huge fan of the pageMash plugin, it makes managing page hierarchy super easy. Unfortunately the plugin hasn’t seen an official update since February 20th 2009. The first problem I noticed with the plugin was the introduction of the “Trash” status. pageMash would include this status as a normal published page. A bit of a disappointment but the plugin still did what it was supposed to, so I didn’t worry about it too much.
While working with WordPress 3.0 and attempting to install pageMash, I was met with the following message:
Plugin could not be activated because it generated 272 characters of unexpected output.
Disabling debugging will fix this, but the Trash & Auto Draft status bugs are still annoying. I made some very minor modifications to pagemash.php, download the file and replace the original. Both status bugs and all warnings should now be fixed. Hooray!
