WordPress Admin Plugin - Bulk Page Stub Creator v1.0 Released

I have just released v1.0 of Bulk Page Stub Creator. It is a WordPress admin plugin that lets you bulk create page stubs by providing a batch of page titles and slugs.

It is a simple plugin; it gives you a text input form and on the first line you type the page title, on the second line you type the slug. Then you repeat the process for as many pages that you want to create.

When you press the Create page stubs page it will automatically create all of the stubs for you.
