// Template Name: Full Width Page
get_header(); ?>
		<?php if (function_exists('progression_breadcrumbs')) progression_breadcrumbs(); ?>
		<div class="content-container">
			<div class="page-content">
				if($post->post_parent) {
					$children = wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li=&child_of=' . $post->post_parent . '&depth=1&echo=0');
				else {
					$children = wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li=&child_of=' . $post->ID . '&depth=1&echo=0');

				if ($children) { ?>
				<ul class="sub-pagination">
