Hi guys,

does someone know a way to get the current page Level? I want to include different templates in hierarchical depency.

Any Idea?

Thanks much!

I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be a built in function for this. You could probably do something like this

public function CurrentLevel() {
$page = $this;
$level = 1;
while(1) {
if($page->Parent) {
$level++;
$page = $page->Parent();
}
else {
return $level;
}
}
}

Hi UncleCheese,

thank you very much - works like a charm ! I am really surprised too that SilverStripe do not provide this function per default...

You saved my day ;-)

This is good to know. I had multiple levels of nested pages and only wanted to display breadcrumbs if the page had a parent so I added this to my controller:

public function IsSubPage() {
      return ($this->Parent);   
}

Worked great.

@SuperStromboli that functionality is available in the templates - You should be able to do <% if Parent %>
