How to: Display sitemap page in WordPress with shortcode

I wanted a way to quickly display all the pages within a WordPress site easily and effectively using the least amount of code.

By adding the following code into your themes functions.php file and simply adding nothing but the shortcode

into the page content, you’ll have all your pages shown in correct hierarchy on a single page which is a great additional navigation page that I know a lot of people use.


add_shortcode('sitemap', 'wp_sitemap_page');

function wp_sitemap_page(){
	return "<ul>".wp_list_pages('title_li=&echo=0')."</ul>";


By utilising the built-in WordPress function wp_list_pages, you can quickly show a list of all the pages within your site.
