#8683 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

exclude_tree in wp_list_pages not working consistently

Reported by: jayp Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.7
Component: Template Keywords: has-patch needs-testing reporter-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


The exlcude_tree parameter in the template tag wp_list_pages is not working reliably for me. I have a situation with pages and child pages, and when using the following,


shows page 379 and its child nodes and shows the child nodes of 51 but not 51 itself.

Changing the function to:


Then hides 379 but not its child nodes. The child nodes of 51 also remain visible.

I've moved 379 and 51 to various levels in the pages hierachy. I've set their status to draft and then published them again. Nothing makes a difference.

I'm terribly sorry I can't be more specific for the conditions that are causing the bug. I am happy to allow someone to look at the database and site if need be.

The exlcude_tree parameter in the template tag wp_list_pages is not working in 2.7 and 2.7.1. It needs a patch. You should be able to use it with a single value and not with a list and that's it (if even so).

is this current in trunk, or only in 2.7? if the later, we might as well close as wontfix. else, we might want to move this to the 2.8 milestone.

moving to 2.8. close as wontfix or invalid if it no longer applies in there.
