Set Parent and Child Pages

    I am trying to designate pages as “parent” and “Child.” According to everything I read, there should be a dropdown menu under “Attributes” on the new page dashboard that allows me to do this. But it doesn’t seem to be there. How can I designate parent and child pages?

    Hi. Are you referring to this support document?

    If you don’t see the “Attributes” module when editing a page, check your “Screen options” on the top right corner.


    Thanks. I figured out that the parent and child attributes are not listed unless your pages are made public.



    If you have created a custom menu please note the following. If you have difficulty with Page and drop-down to child pages in the menu then check the sub-pages themselves to see if you have established a Parent page and child page “hierarchical structure” in the page attributes module. Remove if required. Also remove any “order” numbers you have assigned that may conflict with the order you are creating by dropping and dragging. Or simply change them so they are the same order as you establish in the menu. Establish consistency – problem solved.
