#8558 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Excluding a page from wp_list_pages doesn't exclude children

I have a page titled "About" with ID "5" and its child "Me" with ID "6". If I write:

<?php wp_list_pages('exclude=5&title_li='); ?>

The "Me" page still shows up as a link.

wp_list_pages should exclude the children of the excluded pages, too.

It's reported in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/194657?replies=3 that this bug appeared after 2.3 version.

In 2.7 you can use exclude_tree to exclude a page and its children. exclude retains its current behavior for backward compatibility.
