I'm looking to display sub-pages and their excerpt as a list within a template. I know that my pages respond to
the_excerpt(); through a plugin.
I'm used the code from here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/168982?replies=4 . This works well to drag the page titles up; but displays the excerpt of the page on which it appears (example: on Page A, it displays headings for pages B, C, D and E; but only ever the excerpt from A)
I assume this is because
the_excerpt(); takes the context of the current page. Is it possible to call a specific exceprt?
My thoughts were to use
the_excerpt($Page->ID);, but I can't seem to force a specific excerpt.
Will I have to create a mini-loop for each sub-page? If so, how do I re-set back to the original loop for things like sidebars and footers?
