Hi,

I'm wondering if it's possible in a template to get the properties of a specific page in the site tree?

The scenario is that in the site tree I have a page called "Mailing List" (which appears in the navigation) - this is a redirector page that links to an external site which manages the site's mailing list.

I'm creating an include in templates - MailingListButton - which needs to link to the mailing list's URL. This button will show up on selected pages. I don't want to hard-code the URL as I want to retain flexibility in case the client decides to use a different ESP in the future.

Is there a control that I can use to access the redirctor page's URL in my MailingListButton template?

Ah, nevermind - it was in the docs.
http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=built-in-page-controls&s=page%20controls

<% control Page(my-page) %>$Title<% end_control %>
