So has anyone done this? can be done? On wordpress admin, when you click List Pages, or List posts, I want to make a drag&drop in order to sort the pages/posts, but before I start I want to know if someone has done it already, or if there is a plugin for this.

The My Page Order plugin provides an easy drag and drop interface for re-ordering pages and subpages (as well as a helpful option to make all the pages available directly from the pages menu in the dashboard).

There are many plugins out there that create the drag and drop functionality and the best one I've used is Post Types Order

As far as I see, Post types order..implements a section in the posts to re-order them, I want this thing to work on the built in list pages/list posts section – Uffo Apr 1 '12 at 18:03
it does just that for any post type you have, post, pages or any custom type. – Bainternet Apr 1 '12 at 18:37

I've created a plugin called CMS Tree Page View that perhaps does what you are looking for.

From the description of the plugin: "Adds a tree of all your pages or custom posts. Use drag & drop to reorder your pages, and edit, view, add, and search your pages.".

You can find it at the WordPress plugin repository: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cms-tree-page-view/

Thre are some more alternatives too:

An answer should be more than a link to an external site. – toscho Apr 1 '12 at 19:22
@toscho just cos it's just a link doesn't mean it's not an answer.. – Hosh Sadiq Apr 1 '12 at 20:21
@Uffo I've been using it on WordPress 3.3.1 and works fine. – Hosh Sadiq Apr 1 '12 at 20:21
When the linked site changes or vanishes the answer isn’t an answer anymore. That’s why we expect at least a useful description. – toscho Apr 1 '12 at 21:21
