PW3 include&bootstrap: undefined function wire()


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Function wire() doesn't work in PW3 api after including pw's index.php

Trying to use it exactly the same I use it in pw2 api.

$test = wire('pages')->find('parent_id=1019');

I'm getting an error: PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function wire()

Though https://processwire.com/api/include/ says I can use wire() function as before.

Btw, this one works:


But I want my old scripts work with wire() function in pw3.

Any ideas what could be wrong?

Change this line to <?php namespace ProcessWire;

With v3.0, all global functions are now under ProcessWire namespace, so you need to either declare namespace at the top or prefix function calls (\ProcessWire\wire() for instance)
