I have a custom post type called airports which uses a template called single-airports.php.

I have created a new airport called Gatwick and created a child of this called called Gatwick North Terminal.

How do I get the permalink of Gatwick's children to display on the Gatwick page (single-airports.php).

I would greatly appreciate any help provided!

$args = array( 'post_parent' => get_the_ID(), 'post_type' => 'airports', 'posts_per_page' => -1 );
$loop = new WP_Query( $args );
while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post();

<h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">
    <button><?php _e('View', 'text_domain'); ?></button>

<?php endwhile;  wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
  • Unfortunately this is totally wrong. One should never ever use query_posts() Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 15:04
  • Darn. Can you please elaborate? Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 15:09
  • @PieterGoosen I've amended my answer! Is that any better? Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 15:17

    Much better. I have removed the other wrong section of code. Just a note, you should use wp_reset_postdata() (I have fixed that). wp_reset_query() is used with query_posts() ;-) You should read this post Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 15:21
