WordPress Child Page Menu (parent and subpages)

In this lesson we learn about “parent” and “child” pages in WordPress. We also learn how to code a menu that will automatically output links to any children pages relative to the currently viewed page, as well as a link to the relative top most ancestor page.

  1. Currently running through the tutorial, very helpful!

    While I was following this video I had an issue with the post header(h2) staying on the right side of the children-links nav (instead of under).

    Turns out I didn’t have a clearfix in my css. As I didn’t download any code up till here I’m not sure whether this was made earlier in the tutorial.
