Custom Index Shortcode

Description

This plugin uses the get_pages() function to retrieve a list of pages and puts it in a indented-list-style output.
The list of pages and the output layout can be customized using arguments; some of them are from the get_pages() arguments list, others are brand new and
output related only.

Below there is a list of the arguments you can use so far:

[1] title –> choose if you want a title to be displayed. default is no title.

[2] titlesize –> select the size of the title.

[3] ID –> you have choose the parent of the list. default is the id of the page you are in.

[4] depth –> choose how many generation of children do you want the list to show.

[5] author –> select if you want to display the author username (with or without link to the author posts).

[6] orderby –> this affects the sort_order argument in get_pages() function. choices are: ‘post_title’, ‘menu_order’, ‘post_date’, ‘post_modified’,’ID’, ‘post_author’, ‘post_name’. default is ‘post_title’ .

[7] order –> ASC, DESC.

[8] list –> choose between ‘unordered’ or ‘ordered’ list.
