$pages->getFresh() method

Get a fresh, non-cached copy of a Page from the database

This method is the same as $pages->get() except that it skips over all memory caches when loading a Page. Meaning, if the Page is already in memory, it doesn’t use the one in memory and instead reloads from the DB. Nor does it place the Page it loads in any memory cache. Use this method to load a fresh copy of a page that you might need to compare to an existing loaded copy, or to load a copy that won’t be seen or touched by anything in ProcessWire other than your own code.

Available since version 3.0.172.

Example

$p1 = $pages->get(1234);
$p2 = $pages->get($p1->path);
$p1 === $p2; // true: same Page instance

$p3 = $pages->getFresh($p1);
$p1 === $p3; // false: same Page but different instance

Usage

// basic usage
$page = $pages->getFresh($selectorOrPage);

// usage with all arguments
$page = $pages->getFresh($selectorOrPage, array $options = []);

“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
