Searching Codex and forums left my question unanswered, so here it is.
How do I get wp_list_pages to display a navigation label defined in a custom field instead of the_title (as long as that custom field is defined - failing that, wp_list_pages should default to the_title)?
I wouldn't want to use wp_nav_menu for two reasons:
- I'd like to define the page hierarchy once only (in the page panel, that is);
- I don't want to bother with updating the custom menu whenever I rearrange my pages (which happens often enough).
Is there anybody out there with an elegant solution to this?
