I'm looking to make a page template, which, if the page is a parent of children pages, then display them as an ordered list.

I would preferably like to do this as a loop.

Any ideas, holler.



First set your arguments(settings)

 $args = array(
        'post_parent' => get_the_ID(),
        'post_type'   => 'page',
        'numberposts' => -1,
        'post_status' => 'publish'

    $children = get_children( $args, $output ); 

then you can use something like this

<?php if (!empty($children)):?>
    <ul class="row">
        <?php foreach($children as $dest){
            $permalink = get_permalink($dest->ID);
            echo "<li class='col-sm-4'><a href='{$permalink}'>" . $dest->post_title . "</li>";
<?php endif;?>
