$pages->findOne() method

Like find() but returns only the first match as a Page object (not PageArray).

This is functionally similar to the get() method except that its default behavior is to filter for access control and hidden/unpublished/etc. states, in the same way that the find() method does. You can add an include=... to your selector string to bypass. This method also accepts an $options array, whereas get() does not.

Available since version 3.0.0.

Example

// Find the newest page using the blog-post template
$blogPost = $pages->findOne("template=blog-post, sort=-created");

Usage

// basic usage
$page = $pages->findOne($selector);

// usage with all arguments
$page = $pages->findOne($selector, $options = []);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
selectorstring, array, Selectors

Selector string, array or Selectors object

options (optional)array, string

See $options for $pages->find()

Return value

Page NullPage

Returns a Page on success, or a NullPage (having id=0) on failure
