HI all, I need to change the title of some pages before they are output on a list via wp_list_page. I don't want to change the page title in the backend To be clear, my list displays $children = wp_list_pages("title_li=&child_of=".$post->ID."&echo=0&exclude=&depth=1"); Intro Page 1 Page 2 Page 3

I need to change the name of Intro to be Special

Thx s

Very crude way of doing it:

$children = wp_list_pages("title_li=&child_of=".$post->ID."&echo=0&exclude=&depth=1");
$children = str_replace("Intro", "Special", $children);

Or alternatively you can look at using the new menus feature in WordPress 3.0. Build up you menu of pages, and in there you can assign a different menu name to the page title.
