NullPage class

NullPage is a type of Page object returned by many API methods to indicate a non-match.

The simplest way to detect a NullPage is typically by checking the value of the $page->id property. If it happens to be 0 then for most practical purposes, you have a NullPage. A NullPage object has all of the same methods and properties as a regular Page but there's not much point in calling upon them since they will always be empty.

$item = $pages->get("featured=1"); 

if(!$item->id) {
  // this is a NullPage
}

if($item instanceof NullPage) {
  // this is a NullPage
}

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
