Structuring Hierarchy (Nested Pages) with Content Types (Pages and Articles) in Content

Hi! I’m only a couple weeks in to Drupal, and one of the things I’m noticing is that the pages, articles, and all other content types on my site are just clumped together in the “Content” area of my website.

In other CMS programs, I could have the ability to assign parents and children to most content types, such as in WordPress, Mura, Joomla, and the sort, and each content type would remain separate. We have a large site planned (20,000+ articles and pages) and having a hierarchy is going to be important. I’m trying to nest these pages so that there’s a structure to the way they’re presented, instead of them all being on the same line. Even when I change the parent of a page, it still shows in the line.

My content section looks like this:

– Pastries
– Soups
– Pie
– Turnovers
– Salads
– Chicken Noodle
– Tomato
– Garden
– Muffins
– Caesar

and I want it to look like this:

– Pastries
– Pie
– Turnovers
– Muffins
– Soups
– Chicken Noodle
– Tomato
– Salads
– Garden
– Caesar

I have pages showing under others in my dropdown which I’ve done by setting the parent, but I would like to see these reflected in the way the content page is presented. I’d also like to assign articles to parents so they can show only under those specific categories.

Is this possible? It seems like something that would be standard, but is there something I’m doing wrong or forgetting?

Thanks,
Brendan
