The [subpages] shortcode allows you to place subpages navigation and custom menu (see Creating Custom Menus to learn how to create custom menus) anywhere on the site. You can place it in main content area of the page/post or you can use the Section widget and specify where you want this subpages navigation to appear.

For latest UBC Collab theme, the styling of the subpages navigation is iterated from UBC CLF's Side Navigation

Here is the syntax for the shortcode:

[subpages menu="Valuing Difference"]

Note: "Valuing Difference" is the name of the sample custom menu.

The subpages shortcode has many more attributes.

'siblings' => 'false',
'collapsible' => 'true',
'exclusive' => 'false',
'expand' => 'false',
'menu' => ''

By default, subpages navigation will display child page of current page.


To display other pages on the same level of the current page, add siblings

[subpages siblings=true]

[subpages collapsible=false]
