List Child Pages Shortcode

Description

I could not find a simple plugin that enabled me to use a shortcode that would enable me to publish a list of child pages under a parent page. So, I built one.

Usage:

Example 1: Order the child pages by publish date in descending order:
[listchildpages aclass=”” ifempty=”No child pages” orderby=”publish_date” order=”desc”]

Here are our child pages:

[/listchildpages]

Example 2: Order the child pages by title in ascending order:
[listchildpages aclass=”” ifempty=”No child pages” orderby=”title” order=”asc”]

Here are our child pages:

[/listchildpages]

The shortcode accepts all of the Order and Orderby Parameters listed within the WordPress class reference.

FAQ

How can I add a description for each child page?

Edit the child page and you’ll find an excerpt section where you can enter a description that will be published on the list.
