I am trying to develop a page editing backend, and one of my problems is about how to let the user choose where to nest the page he/she is editing. My boss came up with this solution:
I don't find it really intuitive, though I can't come with a better option that is easier to understand and to use. He plans that each section select would have an input next to it to create a new section a part. Sections are actually pages themselves, so there is no need to create them (in fact, if you create them "on the fly", there might be problmes)
Other options are:
Use just a select with all the subsectioning inside the item list:
Use a "directory-like" metaphor, with folders, double click and so, to get to the desired section:
This option should be accessible from the page edition, so I cannot use a large amount of space.
