PagesPathFinder class

Enables finding pages by path, optionally with URL segments, pagination numbers, language prefixes, etc.

This is built for use by the PagesRequest class and ProcessPageView module, but can also be useful from the public API. The most useful method is the get() method which returns a verbose array of information about the given path. Methods in this class should be acessed from $pages->pathFinder(), i.e.

$result = $pages->pathFinder()->get('/en/foo/bar/page3');

Note that PagesPathFinder does not perform any access control checks, so if using this class then validate access afterwards when appropriate.

“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.
