Returns the current Page being viewed ($page API variable as a function)

This function behaves the same as the $page API variable, though does support optional arguments as shortcuts for getting from the page or setting values to it.

Example

$page = page(); // Simply get $page API var 

// Get the “body” field
$body = page()->body; // direct syntax
$body = page()->get('body'); // regular syntax
$body = page('body'); // shortcut syntax

// Get the “headline” field or fallback to “title’
$headline = page()->get('headline|title'); // regular syntax
$headline = page('headline|title'); // shortcut syntax

// Set the “headline” field
page()->headline = 'My headline'; // direct syntax
page()->set('headline', 'My headline'); // regular syntax
page('headline', 'My headline'); // shortcut syntax

Usage

// basic usage
$page = page();

// usage with all arguments
$page = page(string $key = '', null $value = null);

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
