How to Get wordpress parent page/post title?


If you use pages and subpages or posts and parent posts on your WordPress blog, it should be a good idea to display parent page/post title while on a child page. Here’s a code to do that job easily.

To achieve this recipe, simply edit your page.php file and paste the following code where you’d like your parent page title to be displayed:

$parent_title = get_the_title($post->post_parent);
echo $parent_title;


That’s all. Also, this code should be some inspiration for creating breadcrumbs.
