Parent Page/Child Page. Cannot see Child Page.

  1. Hi,

    I have a question about my blog: http://unmeashunconference2012.wordpress.com/

    I would like the following Page to be a parent Page: http://unmeashunconference2012.wordpress.com/presentation-formats/

    and these two pages to be Child Pages underneath the above:

    - 20×20 anyone?
    and
    — What is a ‘Lightning Talk’?

    What am I doing wrong? I can't see them when I click on the "Presentation Formats" tab.

    The blog I need help with is unmeashunconference2012.wordpress.com.

  2. Very few themes display links to child pages on the parent page itself; several themes automatically display child pages as a dropdown. See here:

    Vigilance does neither.
    If you want links to the child pages on the parent page, you'll have to add them manually in the content of the parent page.
    If you want a dropdown, you'll have to create it yourself by going to Appearance > Menus and dragging the child pages as shown in this screenshot:

    If you want the parent page tab to be non-clickable, that's also possible - see here:

  3. thanks! Appreciate it
