Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if there is a nice clean way of getting the URLSegment (or the whole URL) for a page by parsing just the ID of the page? (i'm talking in the Page class

 not the template - but to use in the template too)

I know i can do:

But is there a function like:


Any help is much appreciated.

Check the SiteTree.php for any function which gets the url but I doubt it exists. A DataObject::get_by_id() function will work just as easily.

Cheers for the reply,

There only seems to be:

SiteTree::get_by_url($this->URLSegment, $idFilter)

Cheers anyway
