I have a several levels of children pages with their own children like this:
Research > Topic 1 > Page 1
Research > Topic 2 > Page 2
Once in Page 1 or Page 2, I need to get the 2nd level page, aka Topic 1 or Topic 2, NOT Research.
Yet when I do echo $post->parent it spits out Research, but I need to get to Topic 1.
How do I do get to the midlevel parent and not the root parent?
