BE Subpages Widget

Description

This widget will dynamically list a section’s subpages. When on a page, it will find the section’s top level page and list its children.

It can also include the current page’s subpages in listing.

You can customize the listing with the following filters:
be_subpages_widget_args – modifies the arguments passed to wp_list_pages
be_subpages_widget_display_override – determine when the widget is displayed
be_subpages_widget_override_post – change the current post
be_subpages_widget_parents – customize the hierarchy used in querying subpages
be_subpages_widget_title – customize the widget title
be_subpages_page_title – customize the page title
be_subpages_widget_class – customize the classes applied to pages

Perfect

Prefect plugin. I was using a custom-coded shortcode to do this, but was having trouble getting the children/grandchildren page lists to appear outside of the parent list’s li element. The default in this plugin to not nest subpages is perfect for the style I need to set up. Thanks!

WP should have this built-in

Simple and elegant, but important, features to have. WordPress should have this widget, exactly as this dev has done. Well-done plugin.

It does exactly what is needed: provide nav within a section, between 2nd and 3rd, on down, level pages from the parent page. Option for the entire menu for the section to display on each page of the section. – The menu displays on all section pages, not just pages with child pages. (I do not know why I had to try so many widget menus to find that.)

The results look great. Seamless. It looks exactly like part of the theme. Consistent and reliable. I have used it on a couple of sites so far.

Thank you for your hard work to provide us with this plugin!
