Sub Pages widget


The Sidebar Widget Plugin is easy to integrate and maintainable content provider for your page,
but one aspect was missing from my side. The pages widget displays all pages, but I liked only to display the
pages which are children from the current root page.
For this reason I wrote the SubPages widget for the Sidebar Widget.

Usage: In the Themes->Sidebar Widget you see in the available widgets section the Sub Page Widget,
which you can drag and drop on your side bar. You
can add a Title which should be displayed in the title of the widget.
This will be combined with the title of the Root Page.
If you leave the title empty only the root page title is displayed.

If a page does not have any child pages this widget is not displayed.




  • On the first page of the blog you don't see the Sub Pages widget, because the page does not have child pages
  • Selecting a root page with child pages will displyes the Sub Pages widget with list of sub pages
  • Configuration Screen


  • Backup your current version of SubPages.php if installed
  • Unpack the and override the SubPages.php with the version in the zip file.
  • May you need to active the PlugIn again in the WordPress PlugIns administration
  • May you need to add the SubPages to your layout in the WordPress Sidebar Widgets administration
  • If your WordPress is not starting please replace the new version through the version you have backuped.


I added the standard menu widget, how can I hide the sub pages?

Thank’s to JT, he has found some usefull tools to do this. or

Thank you again (


Does what it says.

This plugin hasn’t been updated in ten years yet it still does exactly what it’s supposed to do. I’ve used it on a number of projects and it provides a simple functionality that I’m surprised isn’t a standard default widget.
