First and foremost, I cannot express my thanks enough to the developers of WordPress - It is a fantastic product with a million uses, and to have it made available free & backed by such an incredible community is truly something amazing.
Flattery aside, I have been developing WordPress sites for nearly 4 years now, and after writing my own page list code a number of times have concluded it would be quite useful to have an
exclude_children argument for
I do appreciate that the 'exclude_tree' argument is now working in WP 2.8+, but it excludes both both children & parents.
exclude_children would allow wp_list_pages() to output the page list, excluding only the children of specific parent pages and not the parent pages themselves.
Any additional thoughts on this suggestion (or posting of some clever code to accomplish this) are very genuinely appreciated!
