The free Lite Version

In the Lite Edition of the plugin you can take a look around and you try out everything. On several places in the plugin you will find a notice that this function is included in the Pro Version only. There is no support available for the free Lite Version. You can find the Download here.

How the Widget works

  • The Sub Post Navigation Widget displays all child elements of the current page (or custom post type).
  • If there are no child elements the Widget displays the sibling elements of the current page (or custom post type).
  • For Pages (or custom post types) without parent elements and without child elements you can hide the Widget.
  • For deeper nesting of hierarchies the Widget could display a link to the parent page (or custom post type).
  • The Widget title could be replaced by the title of the parent page (or custom post type).

Edit or create your Widget template

The output of the Widget is completely customizable. In the plugin folder you can find the file "sub-post-navigation.php" which renders the output. Please do not modify it - you would lose all your modification then updating the plugin! Copy the file inside your themes folder (regardless of parent or child theme) and start modify it. Inside the template code your can access these vars:

  • $WIDGET: Pointer to the Widget object.
  • $TITLE: Contains the widget title.
  • $PARENT: Contains the ID to the parent post/page
  • $NAVIGATION: Contains a WP_Query object with all elements which should be shown in this view.
