Built-in Methods Reference


Introduced in Version 2.0


Find and return all pages matching the given selector string. Returns a filtered PageArray unless an include mode is specified.

Return value

Returns a filtered PageArray that excludes hidden, unpublished and no-access pages, unless an include mode is specified. To specify an include mode, have your selector string argument have an "include=x", where "x" is "hidden", "unpublished" or "all". 


This method supports pagination when an "limit=10" is specified in the selector string, where "10" may be any  number that you want to limit each pagination count to. ProcessWire automatically identifies the page number from the URL (assuming page numbers are enabled in the rendered page's template settings). To paginate manually, you may also specify a "start=0" in your selector, where "0" may be a number representing the zero-based index of the first page you want to start the results with.  


Find all skyscrapers (i.e. pages using the skyscraper template). Then make a list linking to each of them.

$skyscrapers = $pages->find("template=skyscraper, sort=-modified");
foreach($skyscrapers as $skyscraper) {
    echo "<li><a href='$skyscraper->url'>$skyscraper->title</a></li>";

    Great work Soma. This will also make more people find their way to processwire. I like the contrasting colors, layout and fonts you used for a clear and clean presentation.

    This is great Soma, any chance of matching the IP board usernames with this so that we don't have to fill in name/details on comments (makes it a bit more easy to build up comments) No big deal though. This implementation looks great!

    Thanks kongondo for the feedback, yeah I implemented a keyword parser to the description text to autolink them. Also added a related links. Fun

    It is great! With time, perhaps some cross-referencing could be added? E.g., above, "PageArray" should link to the docs about PageArray :). Nice work, thanks!
