In the process of designing & developing my new site, I've designed all of my page templates and I'm now trying to make the best use of Thematic & WordPress functions to help make my life easier and my website slicker/smarter.
This is a combo blog/portfolio website, and as such, I have created a page aptly titled "Portfolio." My portfolio views are different than the "Blog" view, therefore I created a custom page template for my portfolio items, and created Child Pages under the "Portfolio" Parent Page (also a custom page template).
So the structure looks something like the following:
-Portfolio (Parent Page)
--Item 1 (Child Page)
--Item 2 (Child Page)
--Item 3 (Child Page)
--Item 4 (Child Page)
--Item 5 (Child Page)
I'm going to create a custom-write panel to insert custom fields for each portfolio item page. That aspect I believe I'll be able to implement without much trouble (thanks to the guide at WeFunction).
My trouble is the following:
How can I create a listing of *all* Child Pages on the "Portfolio" page, making use of the best-practice Thematic & WordPress functions? I need to pull the Page Title & Custom field for each item in order to list them on the "Portfolio" Parent Page.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'm new to Thematic, but I'm a quick learner. Thanks so much.
