$page->get() method

Get the value of a Page property (see details for several options)

This method can accept a simple property name, and also much more:

  • You can retrieve a value using either $page->get('property'); or $page->property.
  • Get the first populated property by specifying multiple properties separated by a pipe, i.e. headline|title.
  • Get multiple properties in a string by specifying a string {property} tags, i.e. {title}: {summary}.
  • Specify a selector string to get the first matching child page, i.e. created>=today.
  • This method can also retrieve sub-properties of object properties, i.e. parent.title.

Example

// retrieve the title using get…
$title = $page->get('title');

// …or retrieve using direct access
$title = $page->title;

// retrieve headline if populated, otherwise title
$headline = $page->get('headline|title');

// retrieve title, created date, and summary, formatted in a string
$str = $page->get('{createdStr}: {title} - {summary}');

// example of getting a sub-property: title of parent page
$title = $page->get('parent.title'); 

Usage

$mixed = $page->get(string $key);

Name of property, format string or selector, per the details above.

“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.
