I have a hierarchy that I need to get data from. It's the child (by slug name) that I need to get while already having knowledge of the parents.
Highest Known Parent Page (slug : 'parent') |_ Child 1 (slug : 'child-1') |_ Page 1 (slug : 'page-1') |_ Page 2 (slug : 'page-2') |_ Child 2 (slug : 'child-2') |_ Page 1 (slug : 'page-1') |_ Page 2 (slug : 'page-2') |_ Child 3 (slug : 'child-3') |_ Page 1 (slug : 'page-1') |_ Page 2 (slug : 'page-2')
Ideally I'm trying to have a result that returns "page-2" consistently, and I am already working within a loop where I know "child-1", "child-2", "child-3", etc.I am just not sure how to query the third level. Any ideas?
I'm probably over-thinking this, as there's probably an easy way to get an ID of a page from a slug, when you already know the parent. Of course, I'll need to script contingencies in case "page-2" doesn't exist for some reason, but I first need to get the right data.
Here's the code I'm working with right now. I know models. I know children of models. I'm trying to get each and every one of a certain child underneath all model children. For example, a "specifications" page. So I'm hoping to have like 5-6 different "specifications" pages returned to me...so I can easily link to them (dynamically).
<?php // get models id $models = get_page_by_path( 'models' ); // get children of models page $args = array( 'post_type' => 'page', 'posts_per_page' => -1, 'post_parent' => $models->ID, 'order' => 'ASC', 'orderby' => 'menu_order' ); $children_posts = new WP_Query( $args ); ?>
