Hello, I have just started using WordPress so apologies if I take a while to grasp any advice. I have my pages listed via a widget in my sidebar but as some pages have subpages, it doesn't take long for it to look cluttered.
I am looking to only show the top level pages initially and then show the child pages (if there are any) once a link to a parent page has been clicked.
I looked in the forums and the codex pages and saw the depth argument for
wp_list_pages() and I tried this
<?php wp_list_pages('depth=1&title_li=<h2>' . __('Pages') . '</h2>'); ?> within my sidebar.php
However, I still see all of my pages. I'm a little lost as when I searched for how to only show the top level, everyone seemed to get it the above to work, so I wondered if I did something wrong?
Could anyone offer some advice as to how I can get just the top level pages?
Thank you for your time
