Support » Plugins » [Plugin: SR-ChildPages] Feature suggestion: Description from custom field?

  • I hope this is the right place to ask about new features! I was really happy to find the short-code plugin for listing child pages, but was wondering if it might be possible to consider adding a function for showing the description of a page?

    I’ve seen it done on another plugin (?) whereby each page has a custom field with key e.g. ‘s_description’ and e.g. ‘Table of exchange rates’ for the key value; and this value is pulled from the custom field and listed with the title of the page.

    Thanks 🙂

  • Mosey —

    Thanks for the post, and checking out the plugin. I’ll have to take a look at this — I conceptually know what I’d need to do, but I’m not sure whether I could integrated it into the plugin easily without basically rewriting a built-in WordPress function (basically re-implementing listpages to support grabbing and outputting the custom field; I’d like to avoid that in order to be able to easily extend SR-ChildPages if the listpages function gets improved). But, I’ll keep this in mind for a future version.


    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for your reply! Sorry to have proposed such a strange function. No worries at all – I can understand why you would want to make SR-ChildPages future-proof, because if I could develop plugins, then that would be a main concern too!

    Hopefully listpages will incorporate this ability in the future to make it easier for you.

    Thanks again!
