$pages->saved() method

Hook called after a page is successfully saved

This is the same as hooking after Pages::save, except that it occurs before other save-related hooks. Whereas Pages::save hooks occur after. In most cases, the distinction does not matter.

Usage

// basic usage
$pages->saved(Page $page);

// usage with all arguments
$pages->saved(Page $page, array $changes = [], array $values = []);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
pagePage

The page that was saved

changes (optional)array

Array of field names that changed

values (optional)array

Array of values that changed, if values were being recorded, see Wire::getChanges(true) for details.


Hooking $pages->saved(…)

You can add your own hook events that are executed either before or after the $pages->saved(…) method is executed. Examples of both are included below. A good place for hook code such as this is in your /site/ready.php file.

Hooking before

The 'before' hooks are called immediately before each $pages->saved(…) method call is executed. This type of hook is especially useful for modifying arguments before they are sent to the method.

$this->addHookBefore('Pages::saved', function(HookEvent $event) {
  // Get the object the event occurred on, if needed
  $pages = $event->object;

  // Get values of arguments sent to hook (and optionally modify them)
  $page = $event->arguments(0);
  $changes = $event->arguments(1);
  $values = $event->arguments(2);

  /* Your code here, perhaps modifying arguments */

  // Populate back arguments (if you have modified them)
  $event->arguments(0, $page);
  $event->arguments(1, $changes);
  $event->arguments(2, $values);
});

Hooking after

The 'after' hooks are called immediately after each $pages->saved(…) method call is executed. This type of hook is especially useful for modifying the value that was returned by the method call.

$this->addHookAfter('Pages::saved', function(HookEvent $event) {
  // Get the object the event occurred on, if needed
  $pages = $event->object;

  // An 'after' hook can retrieve and/or modify the return value
  $return = $event->return;

  // Get values of arguments sent to hook (if needed)
  $page = $event->arguments(0);
  $changes = $event->arguments(1);
  $values = $event->arguments(2);

  /* Your code here, perhaps modifying the return value */

  // Populate back return value, if you have modified it
  $event->return = $return;
});

“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
