On my front page of the site (which uses page.php template) I want to display a list of child pages from parent with id 19, I want to display a featured image, title of a page and a specific custom field of each page.
For this purpose I tried to use wp_query but it does not seem to work. I looked into WordPress codex where one of the parameters to use with wp_query is:
post_parent (int) – use page id. Return just the child Pages.
I don’t understand why my code doesn’t work. I am using:
$query = new WP_Query('post_parent=19'); and the loop: while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post(); ?> <?php the_post_thumbnail( 'small' ); ?> <?php the_title(); ?> <?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'intro', true); ?> <?php endwhile; // Reset Post Data wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
I have a parent page with Id 19 set up and relevant subpages. The query above doesn’t not bring any data.
On the same page I also have another loop like this (before above one):
<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?> <div id="welcome"> <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> <h1><?php the_title(); </h1> <?php the_content(); ?> <?php endwhile; ?> <?php wp_reset_query(); wp_reset_postdata(); ?> </div> <?php endif; ?>
I wonder if there is a conflict? Or what is that that I am doing wrong? Am I missing something? Your help would be really appreciated.
