$sanitizer->pagePathName() method

Sanitize a page path name

Returned path is not guaranteed to be valid or match a page, just sanitized.


// basic usage
$string = $sanitizer->pagePathName(string $value);

// usage with all arguments
$string = $sanitizer->pagePathName(string $value, $beautify = false, int $maxLength = 2048);



Value to sanitize

beautify (optional)bool, int

Beautify the value? (default=false). Maybe any of the following:

  • true (bool): Beautify the individual page names in the path to remove redundant and trailing punctuation and more.
  • false (bool): Do not perform any conversion or attempt to make it more pretty, just sanitize (default).
  • Sanitizer::translate (constant): Translate UTF-8 characters to visually similar ASCII (using InputfieldPageName module settings).
  • Sanitizer::toAscii (constant): Convert UTF-8 characters to punycode ASCII.
  • Sanitizer::toUTF8 (constant): Convert punycode ASCII to UTF-8.
  • Sanitizer::okUTF8 (constant): Allow UTF-8 characters to appear in path (implied if $config->pageNameCharset is 'UTF8').
