I manage certain types of pages that can not be root and can not have children through ModelAdmin.

But I should be able to set the parent before creating the page I get an error otherwise.

how can I set the default parent for all pages of a certain type?

There was a default parent function before ss3 but it'd no longer there. If it has to a specific page you can manipulate the parent ID in onBeforeWrite. If it has to be a a specific type the way is to specify allowed_children on every page type, listing every page type except the child class.

I hope allowed parent will work its way into 3.1
