$pages->getPath() method

Given an ID, return a path to a page, without loading the actual page

  1. Always returns path in default language, unless a language argument/option is specified.
  2. Path may be different from 'url' as it doesn't include the root URL at the beginning.
  3. In most cases, it's preferable to use $page->path() rather than this method. This method is here just for cases where a path is needed without loading the page.
  4. It's possible for there to be Page::path() hooks, and this method completely bypasses them, which is another reason not to use it unless you know such hooks aren't applicable to you.

Available since version 3.0.6.

Example

// Get the path for page having ID 1234
$path = $pages->getPath(1234);
echo "Path for page 1234 is: $path";

Usage

// basic usage
$string = $pages->getPath($id);

// usage with all arguments
$string = $pages->getPath($id, $options = []);
