The get_pages function is a WordPress function that retrieves an array of pages that match a specific set of criteria. This function is useful for developers who need to display a list of pages on their website, or who need to retrieve specific pages based on certain criteria.
This function can be used to retrieve pages based on parameters such as the page ID, page title, page parent, or page template. By using this function, developers can easily retrieve pages based on their needs, and display them on their website in a variety of ways.
Here’s an example of how to use the get_pages function to retrieve all pages with a specific page template:
$pages = get_pages(array( ‘meta_key’ => ‘_wp_page_template’, ‘meta_value’ => ‘custom-template.php’ ));
This code will retrieve all pages that use the "custom-template.php" page template and store them in the $pages variable. The retrieved pages can then be displayed on the website using a foreach loop.
