This plugin allows page authors to easily list any child pages of a given page by simply using a new
[childpages] shortcode. A basic list of the children to the page you’re editing will be returned with the shortcode
[childpages]. More-complex versions of the shortcode, as described in the Usage section, give you additional control over the output results.
The basic shortcode to get a page list is
[childpages]. Wherever you have a need to drop of a list of child pages for the page you’re currently authoring, just enter that code in either the Visual or HTML editor. The list that results will not be shown with a title, will be one level deep, will not exclude any child pages or authors, and will be sorted by page order and then by title.
To list the child pages with a title, use the enclosing form of the shortcode, like this:
The text between the opening and closing shortcodes will be the title of the resulting list. It is being passed to the
title_li attribute in the
wp_list_pages() template tag.
To change the defaults used to format the list, pass the appropriate parameters in your shortcode, like this:
[childpages depth=2 sort_column=ID]
The parameters you provide are passed to
wp_list_pages(). The following parameters are supported; usage details for these parameters can be found in the WordPress Codex.
For more information, visit the plugin’s home page at http://scottierocket.com/wordpress-stuff/sr-childpages.
To start using the
[childpages] shortcode, install it by uploading the sr-childpages folder to your wp-content/plugins directory and then activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress. Then just start using the shortcode in your pages!
- Why did you do this?
Because none of the other plugins I’ve found that enabled similar functionality were exactly what I wanted. They either didn’t give me the control I wanted over things like sort order, or used comment tags that weren’t visible in the Visual editor, or both.
