$page->httpUrl() method

Returns the URL to the page, including scheme and hostname

  • This method is just like the $page->url() method except that it also includes scheme and hostname.

  • This method can also be accessed at the property $page->httpUrl (without parenthesis).

  • It is desirable to use this method when some page templates require https while others don't.
    This ensures local links will always point to pages with the proper scheme. For other cases, it may be preferable to use $page->url() since it produces shorter output.

Example

// Generating a link to this page using httpUrl
echo "<a href='$page->httpUrl'>$page->title</a>"; 

Usage

// basic usage
$string = $page->httpUrl();

// usage with all arguments
$string = $page->httpUrl(array $options = []);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
options (optional)array

For details on usage see Page::url() options argument.

Return value

string

Returns full URL to page, for example: https://processwire.com/about/

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
