Hopefully this is an easy one that I just can't seem to find...

If you are using hierarchical urls in 2.4 what function(s) would you use to get the full path. For example if you have how would return the full path. I've been looking at Director functions, but I can only get them to return the beginning and the end of the full URL i.e. or child/grandchild. I was using baseurl and urlParams respectively. What simple thing am I missing?--I want to be able to redirect to with Director::redirect()

Thanks in advance!

If you've got the page already, $page->Link(), otherwise SiteTree:get_by_link('insert-page-here')->Link(), however that'll only work if 'insert-page-here' is a unique URLSegment.

SiteTree:get_by_link('insert-page-here')->Link() was exactly what I was looking for.
