I have created a child page. However, when I access "http://example.com/Page/ChildPage" does not appear?

Page (filename = page.php -> content-page.php) [WORK]

Child Page (filename = page.php -> content-child-page.php) [NOT WORK]


$slug = get_post_field( 'post_name', get_post() );
echo $slug;

while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();

    get_template_part( 'template-parts/page/content' , $slug );

endwhile; // End of the loop.

Admin screen for all page

View donation page

Child page from donation. When clicking on the child page is redirected to the homepage

You need to check if the page have parent to display the child page template or if he doesnt have to display the parent page template. If $post->post_parent is equal to 0 thats mean that he doesnt have a parent.

while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    $template = ($post->post_parent == 0) ? 'page' : 'child-page';
    get_template_part( 'template-parts/page/content' , $template );
endwhile; // End of the loop.
  • The problem is the child page does not read the file from page.php Dec 26, 2017 at 11:21
  • When you enter the child page what happend? do you see the echo $slug; output? You maybe select different page template in the child page?
