I have the following code the generates the sitemap.

                                    'exclude' => '5',
                                    'sort_column' => 'ID',
                                    'title_li' => ''

It generates a hierarchy of my Pages but it also has links to my parent pages.

enter image description here

check the screenshot above. I only need the title for all the parents not the link.

Please help. Thanks.

  • why not creating your own function as this one is a default WP one and it behave like this – Temani Afif Dec 8 '17 at 8:10
  • Can you please provide any example code for this? I am new to Wordpress. – Ahsan Ali Dec 8 '17 at 9:15
  • You have at least five choices: 1) extend Walker_Page to use within wp_list_pages() ; 2) create a navigation menu; 3) write your own function; 4) filter out <a> tag from the return of wp_list_pages() using regular expression; 5) use CSS. – Max Yudin Dec 8 '17 at 9:20

You can use get_pages() instead and write some custom code like this :

$args = array('exclude' => '5',
             'sort_column' => 'ID'
$pages = get_pages($args); 
  foreach ( $pages as $page ) {
    echo $page->post_title;

You may of course elaborate more the code in order to obtain a tree.

You may also check the source code of wp_list_pages() and you will see that there is the get_pages() function, so you may also copy its code and modify it :
