I'm admin user and just created several editor users who are 'NOT' allowed to edit other pages.
Let me call them 'master editor','editor A' and 'editor B'.

  • 'master editor' can edit top level parent pages.
  • 'editor A' and 'editor B' can edit child pages.
top level parent pages 1 ('master editor')
- child page 1-1 ('editor A')
-- grandchild page 1-1 ('editor A')
-- grandchild page 1-1 ('editor A')
- child page 1-2 ('editor B')
-- grandchild page 1-2 ('editor B')
-- grandchild page 1-2 ('editor B')
top level parent pages 2 ('master editor')
- child page 2-1 ('editor A')
-- grandchild page 2-1 ('editor A')
-- grandchild page 2-1 ('editor A')
- child page 2-2 ('editor B')
-- grandchild page 2-2 ('editor B')
-- grandchild page 2-2 ('editor B')

I could realize this writting the source below on functions.php:

function my_remove_caps(){
    $role = get_role( 'editor' );
    $role->remove_cap( 'edit_others_pages' );
}
add_action( 'admin_init', 'my_remove_caps' );

The problem is when I log in as 'editor A', Control Panel shows the pages like this:

- child page 1-1
- child page 2-1
-- grandchild page 1-1
-- grandchild page 1-1
-- grandchild page 2-1
-- grandchild page 2-1

I mean hierarchical order looks destroyed and hard to get which is the parent page of 'grandchild page'.

I want it shows like this:

- child page 1-1
-- grandchild page 1-1
-- grandchild page 1-1
- child page 2-1
-- grandchild page 2-1
-- grandchild page 2-1

or more ideal

top level parent pages 1
- child page 1-1
-- grandchild page 1-1
-- grandchild page 1-1
top level parent pages 2
- child page 2-1
-- grandchild page 2-1
-- grandchild page 2-1

Is there any way to keep hierarchical order on control panel?

I'm not a native English speaker and feel sorry about my poor English. Hope you understand. Thank you!
