I'm trying to write some functional tests but am having an issue getting a valid page back when using Director::test(). All I get is a 404 - page not found.

I have a simple test that calls:

$response1 = Director::test('contact/');
Debug::show("<!-- START ".$response1->getBody()." END -->");

The debug output shows HTML for the 404 page... so my test obviously fails because the HTML code I'm asserting to validate the page loaded properly is absent.

What am I missing here?

Is your contact page in your yaml file. Tests run in a 'new' database and not your sites database so any pages you have setup via the CMS won't be there.

Ahhh - yep. That's what I'm missing :) Thanks Will! Much appreciated.
