Pages display advice needed

  • Hi – I’ve been searching everywhere and I feel like a dolt for not being able to find the answer to this. I’m looking for two widgets – one which displays only parents, and one that displays only the children of a specific parent, when that parent is selected. So if I had three parents: 1, 2, 3 and each parent had three children A, B, C it would function like this:

    – When no page is chosen, the parents-only widget will display all parents: 1, 2, 3. the children-only widget does not display at all.

    – When a parent 1 is chosen, the parents only widget continues to display all parents (1, 2, 3). The children-only widget displays only the children of parent 1: 1-A, 1-B, 1-C and not any of the other parents.

    I want to put these into a three column theme with one widget on each side.

    Thanks so much in advance for what I think is much easier than I’m making it. I’m sure that such widgets exist, but everyone that I try doesn’t seem to work, or perhaps I’m using them incorrectly.

    Warmly,
    Rick

    Not quite what you asked for but wp_list_pages can do this – including the sub-page listing.

    Don’t hold it against me for not being able to code! I was hoping that there was a widget that could do this out of the box. i was thinking that it wasn’t too extraordinary a desire?

    Found it! I’m using Flexi-pages for the parents, and Sub-Pages for the children.
