Hey there!

I am creating a custom Wordpress theme for a site I'm developing and want to add a sub-navigation menu to the sidebar.

So how it will work, once you are on a particular page, if the page has "child" pages, it will post the parent page as a title and the child pages in an unordered list. So something like this:

<h3>Parent Page</h3>
<ul>
<li>Child Page 1</li>
<li>Child Page 2</li>
<li>Child Page 3</li>
</ul>

Open in new window


If a page doesn't have any child pages, I don't want it to show anything.

Can someone lend me a hand? I've found a couple of samples online but none that are exactly what I'm looking for.

Thanks.

P.S. I would prefer to not use a plugin to do this.

I think I answered my own question :)

<?php
   $children = wp_list_pages('title_li=&child_of='.$post->ID.'&echo=0');
  
if ($children) { ?>
<h3>
<?php $parent_title = get_the_title($post->post_parent);
echo $parent_title; ?>
</h3>
<ul>
<?php echo $children; ?>
</ul>
