Solved - Get URL of page by targeting template and multiple selection checkbox

Recommended Posts

I have the template: categories-template.php

And the select multiple choice checkbox field:
 categoryoptions
1 - red
2 - blue
3 - green

And 3 pages (using the template categories-template.php)

redpage (with the page id 1120 & the checkbox 'red' checked off on the field categoriesoptions)
bluepage (with the page id 1130 &  the checkbox 'blue' checked off on the field categoriesoptions)
greenpage (with the page id 1140 & the checkbox 'green' checked off on the field categoriesoptions)

When I try to target the blue page with:

<?php echo $pages->find("template=categories-template, artcategories=2"); ?>

I receive the right page ID, in the above example it outputs the id '1130'.

But

<?php echo $pages->find("template=categories-template, artcategories=2")->url; ?>

Doesn't get the page URL of bluepage, it just returns the URL of the current page that it is on.

Any suggestions? I've been troubleshooting this longer than I'd like to admit lol. Thanks

$pages->find() returns a PageArray, and you can't get the URL of a PageArray. I think you want $pages->get() or $pages->findOne().

I recommend checking that a real page is returned before trying to get its URL.

$p = $pages->findOne("template=categories-template, artcategories=2");
if($p->id) {
   // Page was found, output its URL, etc
} else {
   // No page found, so deal with this somehow 
}

Thank you! findOne worked, I had tried get() instead of find() but it didn't work out.

And oops messed up my code example I gave by leaving wrong field name  (artcategories should be categoryoptions)
