Could I please have some suggestions for controlling my Sidebar?
Like many people, I am using WordPress 1.5 as Blog software and as a content management system(CMS). I have a lot of Pages so when the Pages List shows up in my Sidebar it is really long!
(I have the Pages List turned off for the Blog pages.)
Is there any way to tame it down a bit? Specifically- So that the list in the Sidebar only shows the other Pages that are the “children” of that page and the other pages at the same level in the hierarchy (meaning, parallel pages or “brother and sister” pages, to continue the family metaphor)?
So briefly, the Sidebar shows “Children” and “Brothers” but not “Grand-Children” and not “Parents”.
In example, the way it would ideally work:
1. If I were making a site called “Food”, at the top level the Sidebar Pages List would only say “Meat, Vegetables, Dairy, Fruit”.
2. Then, If I click on “Fruit” it takes me to the Fruit Page and the Sidebar displays “Citrus, Apples, Exotics, Other” and also the parallel pages “Meat, Vegetables, Dairy, Fruit”.
3. Then I click on “Citus” and on the Citrus Page the sidebar says “Oranges, Lemons, Grapefruit, Tangerines” and also “Citrus, Apples, Exotics, Other”.
4. Finally I click on “Oranges” – and that last page having no children (non-parent page) the side bar would only say “Oranges, Lemons, Grapefruit, Tangerines”
Is there a way to do this? I’ve been scanning the documentation for a long time but can’t seem to see anything remotely relevant.
thanks a lot!
