url helper help
i'm struggling to work out how the URL helper helps to construct urls for inside blocks.
I have setup a single page (match-fixtures) and in a block I would like to link to this page.
How can i use the url helper to format the correct url for weather the site has pretty links enabled or disabled?
1) If you have the path to the page (not the full URL, just the path relative to the home page), you can do this:
<?php echo View::url('/page/path'); ?>
2) If you have the collection object ($c in the example below), you can do this:
<?php Loader::helper('navigation')->getLinkToCollection($c); ?>
The "URL Helpers" are somewhat of a misnomer -- they are for constructing and parsing url strings, not for getting url's to concrete5 pages.
i notice i've been asking alot of questions and not answering many...hopefully i'll be able to reverse that and give back to the community soon once i learn more about the system lol
