I have like 5 parent pages and would like to echo all their title's on the front page.php. Maybe with get_the_id(); but don't know how.

Check Post & Page Parameters or get_page_children().

global $post;
$args = array(
    'post_type'      => 'page',
    'posts_per_page' => -1,
    'post_parent'    => $post->ID,
    'order'          => 'ASC',
    'orderby'        => 'menu_order'

$parent = new WP_Query( $args );

if ( $parent->have_posts() ) : ?>

    <?php while ( $parent->have_posts() ) : $parent->the_post(); ?>

        <div id="parent-<?php the_ID(); ?>" class="parent-page">

            <h1><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1>


    <?php endwhile; ?>

<?php endif; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>

  • Hey thanks for the answer. The $post->Id is empty i get nothing when i try this – Gago Oct 18 '18 at 10:31
  • Depending on how your theme/plugin is structured you could use get_the_ID() in place of $post->ID. If get_the_ID() won't work, you can grab the global $post object & retrieve the ID from it. – admcfajn Oct 18 '18 at 19:20

i would go for get_ancestors. it will return an array of ID's that you can use for whatever you want..

$anchestors = get_ancestors( get_the_ID(), 'page' );
if (!empty($anchestors)) :
    foreach ($anchestors as $anchestor) :
        echo get_the_title( $anchestor );
