Drag and drop page ordering in a tree page view WordPress

Currently the default method to rearrange WordPress pages or posts is to go to All Posts / All Pages. Click “Quick Edit” of the page/post you would like to have for instance in the top and be sure it has 0 (rewrite it to become 0). Select various other pages/posts and add another number in the Order field.
