[resolved] Show list of Child pages of current page w/ Featured Image (7 posts)

    I would like to show a list of the child pages of the current page with their prospective "Featured Images" INSIDE THE LOOP.

    I am able to produce the list of child pages, but haven't been able to get the Featured Image to be pulled in.

    This is what I have inside the loop to echo the child page names/links

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

    Any help to get me on the right path of adding the images would be great :)

    THANKS ahead of time!

    Okay I've figured it out... Hopefully this will help someone else. I used this code and edited it for the Get_the_post_thumbnail

    This lists my child pages with their feature image thumbnail INSIDE THE LOOP of the page

    <?php
    $child_pages = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT *    FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_parent = ".$post->ID."    AND post_type = 'page' ORDER BY menu_order", 'OBJECT');    ?>
    <?php if ( $child_pages ) : foreach ( $child_pages as $pageChild ) : setup_postdata( $pageChild ); ?>
    <div class="child-thumb">
      <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail($page->ID, 'thumbnail'); ?>
     <a href="<?php echo  get_permalink($pageChild->ID); ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php echo $pageChild->post_title; ?>"><?php echo $pageChild->post_title; ?></a>
    </div>
    <?php endforeach; endif;
    ?>

    Thanks Brittgamil.

    I used your code (with some tiny adjustments) to display a rotating image on a WordPress CMS home page so that clients can add a page with a featured image mark the parent as another page then select all the child pages of this page with featured image and display with JS. Works a treat.

    Did you know that in WP 3.0 you can use the 'the_post_thumbnail()' and you can also set the sizes so can have your own sizes i.e. the_post_thumbnail('my-special-thumbnail-size'). Sorry if you already knew, just wanted to add something.

    Thanks for the code.

    I modified it to get the thumbnail of each Sub-Page instead of the the thumbnail of the current page: $page->ID replaced with $page->pageChild.

    I also got the link to encapsulate both image and text to create a menu.

    <?php
                            $child_pages = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT *    FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_parent = ".$post->ID."    AND post_type = 'page' ORDER BY menu_order", 'OBJECT');    ?>
                            <?php if ( $child_pages ) : foreach ( $child_pages as $pageChild ) : setup_postdata( $pageChild ); ?>
    
                            <div class="child-thumb">
                             <a href="<?php echo  get_permalink($pageChild->ID); ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php echo $pageChild->post_title; ?>">
                                <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail($pageChild->ID, 'single-post-thumbnail'); ?>
                                <?php echo $pageChild->post_title; ?>
                             </a>
                            </div>

    Thanks Britt, that was extremely helpful.

    However I noticed one small change was needed to ensure that the featured image that was pulled was for the actual child page and not the current page.

    <?php
    $child_pages = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT *    FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_parent = ".$post->ID."    AND post_type = 'page' ORDER BY menu_order", 'OBJECT');    ?>
    <?php if ( $child_pages ) : foreach ( $child_pages as $pageChild ) : setup_postdata( $pageChild ); ?>
    <div class="child-thumb">
      <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail($pageChild->ID, 'thumbnail'); ?>
     <a href="<?php echo  get_permalink($pageChild->ID); ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php echo $pageChild->post_title; ?>"><?php echo $pageChild->post_title; ?></a>
    </div>
    <?php endforeach; endif;
    ?>
