Newbie here with hopefully a simple question...

I have a structure as per the image below where I want to only show the parent item and it's children on their pages.

I want to exclude the other entries but they should show on their own pages.

My structure

You can access children through the entry's descendants property.

{# display event-information #}
    <li><a href="{{ entry.url }}">{{ entry.title }}</a>
    {# display subsections #}
            {% for subsection in entry.descendants %}
                <li><a href="{{ subsection.url }}">{{ subsection.title }}</a></li>
            {% endfor %}

You can also use the nav tag, as described in the documentation.

<ul id="nav">
    {% nav entry in entries %}
            <a href="{{ entry.url }}">{{ entry.title }}</a>
            {% ifchildren %}
                    {% children %}
            {% endifchildren %}
    {% endnav %}

More generally speaking, you can use any of the following properties of the EntryModel to traverse the structure: parent, children, descendants, ancestors, siblings, nextSibling, prevSibling, and level.

  • Worth noting that the top example has a typo on line 7, the <li> element isn't closed, but rather a second <li>. Apr 17, 2017 at 21:20
  • @ChristopherRobertKennedy Thanks! Fixed. Btw... feel free to edit when you find an obvious error like that, assuming you have permission. Apr 19, 2017 at 22:04
  • For some reason, I was having problems accessing the edit feature in Chrome. Seems to work for me in Safari now, though. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Apr 20, 2017 at 1:11

Try using .level(1)

{% for eventsEntry in craft.entries.section('events').level(1) %}
        {% set image = eventsEntry.pic.first() %}

        {% if image %}
            <img src="{{ image.getUrl('thumb') }}" alt="{{image.title}}"/>
        {% endif %}

        <h4 class="center">{{ eventsEntry.title }}</h4>

        {{ eventsEntry.shortDescription }}
{% endfor %}
