Support » Fixing WordPress » dynamically limit depth of wp_list_pages

  • I guess that this should be an easy one but I haven’t yet find the proper solution.
    I want to limit the depth of wp_list_pages so as not to display the pages of the last level. So supposing that parent page A has 3 levels of pages I only want to list first 2 levels. I was looking for a function to count the maximum depth of children for a page but no success.
    Till now my code is

    $parents = get_post_ancestors($post->ID);
    	if (count($parents)>1) {
    		$parent = $parents[count($parents)-2];
    	} else	{
    		$parent = $post->ID;
    	}
    
    	$args = array(
                'depth'        => 0,  // this should be set dynamically
                'child_of'     => $parent,
                'sort_column'  => 'menu_order, post_title',
                'post_type'    => 'page',
                'post_status'  => 'publish'
            ); 
    
    		$page_nav = wp_list_pages( $args );

    Any help is greatly appreciated

  • Actually, I don’t think it is that easy. Please explain what you would show for posts like this:

    parent
    —child a
    —child b
    ——child ba
    ——child bb
    ———child bba
    ———child bbb
    ———child bbc
    ———child bbd
    ——child bc
    ———child bca
    ————child bcaa
    —————child bcaaa

    It whould be like this

    parent
    —child a

    —child b
    ——child ba
    ——child bb

    ——child bc
    ———child bca
    ————child bcaa

    which means all levels of each child except the last level.

    Well, it definitely is not simple, but I think I at least got close. The code is here: http://pastebin.com/pV5pe2S0
