Hi Micheal H. Thanks for your reply. I named my pages with the numbers purposely so maybe you can ignore that part of it.
Here is my Template:
Template Name: Discussions
<?php get_header(); ?>
<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
<h2 class="pagetitle"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
This section is an open forum for viewers to discuss & debate random topics per week. I will be posting "The Topic Of The Week" as it will allow us to converse about highlights of the media, politics, celebrity gossip, life & relationships, and parenting. Topics are posted in a numerical order (the highest number being the most recent topic) For those that are subscribed, you will receive an email notification when the new topic is posted! So if you're interested in being involved, please subscribe to my mailing list. Thank you.
<?php $children = get_pages('child_of='.$post->ID.'&show_date=modified
&date_format=$date_format');if ($children) : ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php endwhile; endif; ?>
<?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p style="margin:10px;">', '</p>'); ?>
<br class="clear" />
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>
