I am trying to create a query that will retrieve results only for pages that have been published. Right now when I run the query below, I will get EVERY page, whether I have hit publish on them or not. This is a problem :)

$filter = $this::get()->filter('Filters:PartialMatch', $this->request->getVar('tag'))->First();

Also, How would I check in .ss page whether the page has been published? For example I want to write code such as this:

<% if published %>
<% else %>
<% end_if %>

What would be the keyword I use?

SilverStripe should handle this for you built in. You don't need to explicitly fetch stage / live. Make sure you're not viewing the site in 'stage' module (try your and see if pages still show up.

If you explicitly want to get content by stage use Versioned (

Where do I set the site between different stages and what are all the stages available?

To run a query to get pages via the stage you would need some code like below

// Fetching multiple records
$stageRecords = Versioned::get_by_stage('SiteTree', 'Stage');
$liveRecords = Versioned::get_by_stage('SiteTree', 'Live');

The url below has more info on Versioning


To get pages that have been published via a template try something like this

function getPublishedPages() {
return Versioned::get_by_stage('SiteTree', 'Live');

In the template use something like this

<% loop PublishedPages %>
<% end_loop %>
