WOOF :: children( Arguments $args = array() )


  • WOOF_Collection of  WOOF_Post A collection of child posts if the current object is a post.
  • WOOF_Collection of  WOOF_Term A collection of child terms if the current object is a term.
  • WOOF_Collection An empty collection if there are no child objects, or the current object is not hierarchical, or the current object is not a post or term.

Retrieves the immediate child objects of the current WordPress WOOF::object.

This method uses get_posts or get_terms to retrieve the children, and you can further clarify this query with the args parameter (the parent parameter will be enforced to actually retrieve the children). 

Note: this will only return meaningful results if the current object is a post or term (and the type / taxonomy is hierarchical respectively).



  • Arguments $args = array()

    An arguments array or string further clarifying the query used to retrieve the children, with defaults:

    • orderby => “name”
    • order => “asc”
