Support » Plugins » Another list_pages function

  • Resolved mptre


    Hi there!
    I wasn’t completely satisfied with the default wp_list_pages() function for several reasons. For instance, if I list all pages in the main-navigation and then visit a child-page , the parent-page in the main-navigation would lose it’s current-item class. So I wrote a simple plugins that does the job just fine. Feel free to use it or give me some feedback.

    Plugin Name: List pages
    Plugin URI:
    Description: Retreive pages, and children (optional), in a more sophisticated way and add the correct class to the current li-element.
    Version: 0.2
    Author: Anton Lindqvist
    Author URI:
    	Display all pages: <?list_pages()?>
    	Display all pages, include home-link: <?list_pages('','Home')?>
    	Display all children of the page with id 3: <?list_pages(3)?>
    	function list_pages($child=NULL,$home=NULL,$echo=TRUE) {
    		global $wpdb;
    		global $wp_query;
    		$i = 0;
    		$child = (!$child) ? 0 : $child;
    		$query = 'select ID, post_title, guid from '.$wpdb->posts.' where post_type=\'page\' and post_status=\'publish\' and post_parent='.$child.' order by menu_order';
    		$result = $wpdb->get_results($query,ARRAY_A);
    		foreach($result as $key => $val) {
    			if($i == 0 && $home) {
    				if(!is_page()) $items .= '<li class="page_item page-item-0 current_page_item"><a class="current_page_item" href="'.get_option('home').'" title="'.$home.'">'.$home.'</a></li>' . "\n";
    				else $items .= '<li class="page_item page-item-0"><a href="'.get_option('home').'" title="'.$home.'">'.$home.'</a></li>' . "\n";
    			if(is_page($val['post_title']) or count($wpdb->get_row('select ID from '.$wpdb->posts.' where post_parent='.$val['ID'].' and ID='.$wp_query->get_queried_object_id().' and post_type=\'page\' and post_status=\'publish\' limit 1')) > 0) $items .= '<li class="page_item page-item-'.$val['ID'].' current_page_item"><a class="current_page_item" href="'.$val['guid'].'" title="'.$val['post_title'].'">'.$val['post_title'].'</a></li>' . "\n";
    			else $items .= '<li class="page_item page-item-'.$val['ID'].'"><a href="'.$val['guid'].'" title="'.$val['post_title'].'">'.$val['post_title'].'</a></li>' . "\n";
    		if($echo) echo $items;
    		else return $items;

  • Would anyone know how to modify this so that the list it returns includes a child count for each item? So I guess what I’d be looking for is to return the child count of each child.
