Support » Plugin: Nested Pages » “Add Child Link” behavior

  • It would be nice if “Add Child Link” behaved the same as “Add Child Page” in a generic WordPress sort of way.

    After much testing, the default WP “Navigation Menu” widget seems to be the only option where added “Child Links” will display. And this methodology is simply unfeasible for very large sites with 100s of pages… because the WP “Navigation Menu” is all or nothing.

    When you use other widgets, such as WP’s default “Pages”… or one of my favorites: “BE Sub Pages” (for section-specific menus)… Child Links do NOT display in the menu despite appearing in Nested Pages as if they were a page.

    In essence, I’d like Child Links to behave like a regular page from WPs point of view. Because other menu widgets for PAGES are ignoring those child links.

    Make sense?

    (My current work-around is to create a regular page as a placeholder, then using another plugin, I redirect that place-holder page to the external link.)

  • Hi Mlipenk

    I am having this issue too, I think. Out of interest, what plug-in are you using to re-direct as I’ll need to set up a work-around myself!)

    Many thanks


    In fact, now that I look at it I can’t even get a child link to display on Nav Menu! 🙁


    I have two plugins I use for redirects:


    Redirect places a redirect option right in the page’s editing view. I typically use this one for placeholder pages. When I want a page link to appear in a menu, but want it to redirect elsewhere.

    Safe Redirect:

    I use this one also because I have a LARGE site recently migrated from static html pages. There are occasionally Google search results that still have old pages cached. When I simply want a generic redirect from an old URL to a new URL, I use this option.
