Do you want to use parent page name in the navigation menus or conditional tags? While there can be many ways to retrieve this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to get parent page name in WordPress.
All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s template file or in a site-specific plugin:
<?php // get the page name $parent_title = get_the_title($post->post_parent); // display page name echo $parent_title; // Use as a conditional tag // If pagent page is named Archives if($parent_title=="Archives"): //do something else: //do something else endif; ?>
