Im working on a website where I need to create a submenu that shows only the parent pages. When I click on one of the parents it has to show the children from that parent.

Here is the menu hierarchy I used this widget plugin: Subpages Extended for showing the parents and children:

  • Parent
    • Parent1 from parent
      • Child1 from parent1
      • Child2 from parent1
    • Parent2 from parent
      • Child1 from parent2
      • Child2 from parent2

Could you explain me or give an example/tutorial on how to do it?

I think you don't have to use any plugin for that, check out:


and use $depth to control the levels you want to display.
