Programatically updating a page path (cHandle) requires rescanCollectionPath()

Permalink 6 users found helpful
I found out after many hours of bashing away that to update a page path using $page->update() a rescanCollectionPath() is required.

I didn't see any mention of rescanCollectionPath() here in the forums. So I hope this post helps someone in the future.
Here is an example:
$pagebycID = Page::getByID('113');
   $new_data = array();
   $new_data['cHandle'] = 'new-path';
   $new_data['cName'] = 'new-title';
   $pagebycID->update($new_data);
   $pagebycID->rescanCollectionPath();


Also thanks to jshannon and digia3 on IRC for their help.

That was driving me insane. Checked my code a few times, thought I'll see soon some pinky elephants flying by. You saved my day! Thanks!

Still a great POST even years later. Especially since the example of $some_page>add() with a "cHandle"=>"my_handle" does not use that handle as the page path (as documented).

I wasted more than a day trying to fix this problem.
THANK YOU!
