Plugin / RT Filter Page List

Roy Tanck



Hooks into WordPress core function wp_list_pages, and removes pages from the generated list that are not part of the
current navigation path. This creates an accordion navigation effect, and is an alternative approach to the CSS-based
way suggested in the Codex.

By removing unneeded HTML elements server-side, page size is reduced, and client-side rendering will usually be faster.
This is especially true for older browsers, and sites with a large number of published pages.

This plugin is intended to be used with the “pages” widget that comes with WordPress, or any navigation element that uses

There are two ways the plugin can apply the filter.

  1. By modifying the default Pages widget that comes with WordPress
  2. By applying the filter everywhere wp_list_pages is used

Please note that since the second option uses the wp_list_pages hook, the filtering will take place anywhere
wp_list_pages is used. This includes menu locations to which no custom menu is assigned. Please make sure all your
menu locations have a custom menu assigned to them to avoid unexpected behavior.

This plugin requires the PHP DOMDocument extension, and PHP5.
