$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/

“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
