    Hello. I am having trouble trying to arrange my menu list in a specific order.

    I would like it to display in the order below with an em dash in the middle to separate them:

    Projects — Information — News

    How can I do this?

    This is the code I have.

    &mdash; <?php $links = get_pages(); foreach($links as $i => $page) $links[$i] = '
    <li class="page-' . (is_page($page->ID) ? 'active' : 'item') . '">
     <a href="' . get_page_link($page->ID) . '" title="' . attribute_escape(apply_filters('the_title', $page->post_title)) . '">' . apply_filters('the_title', $page->post_title) . '</a></li>
     ';echo implode(' — ', $links); ?> &mdash;
    <a href="#" class="show_hide">Information</a>

    My website is

    Have you tried setting the page order within the admin?

    You’d need to set your page order, and then you can output them as you desire using this (untested) code –

    /** Get the pages */
    $pages = get_pages();
    /** Construct a link for each of the pages in $links */
    foreach($pages as $page) :
    	/** Make the menu item */
    	$page_link = sprintf("\n\t".'<li class="page-%1$s">'."\n", is_page($page->ID) ? 'active' : 'item');
    	/** Make the link */
    	$page_link.= sprintf("\t\t".'<a href="%1$s" title="%2$s">%3$s</a>'."\n", get_page_link($page->ID), attribute_escape(apply_filters('the_title', $page->post_title)), apply_filters('the_title', $page->post_title));
    	$page_link.= "\t".'</li>'."\n");
    	/** Add the menu item with link that we just created to an array */
    	$links[] = $page_link;
    /** Create the information link */
    $links[] = '"\n\t".<a href="#" class="show_hide">Information</a>'."\n";
    /** Output everything, seperated by the '&mdash;' that is desired */
    printf('%1$s', explode('&mdash;', $links));


    Thanks heaps for the replies. Yes I have set the intended order.

    The code above is creating an error. It doesn’t like the 2nd line in the making a link section.

    It’s probably just a typo that I made. What is the error that you are getting?
