FAQ

If you want to add a hierarchical set of pages to your site you will probably want control over the excerpt used when displaying a menu list of pages.
A good system can be achived in conjustion with my PJW Query Child Of plugin (https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pjw-query-child-of/) which helps you build post queries to select children of a specific page.
