$page->hasStatus() method

Does this page have the given status?

This method is the preferred way to check if a page has a particular status. The status may be specified as one of the Page::status constants or a string representing one of the constants, i.e. hidden, unpublished, locked, and so on.


// check if page has hidden status using status name
if($page->hasStatus('hidden')) { ... }

// check if page has hidden status using status constant
if($page->hasStatus(Page::statusHidden)) { ... }

// There are also method shortcuts, i.e.
if($page->isHidden()) { ... }
if($page->isUnpublished()) { ... }
if($page->isLocked()) { ... }


$bool = $page->hasStatus($status);


statusint, string

Status flag constant or string representation (hidden, locked, unpublished, etc.)
