I need to output the relative URL for the current page for a GA event label. According to Craft 3 docs, it seems like rootRelativeUrl() as in:

{% relative = entry.rootRelativeUrl() %} 

should do the job but it generates and 'Calling unknown method' error. Any ideas?


The easy way:

{% set relativeUrl = craft.app.request.url %}

Otherwise, and as a general example of using Craft helper functions...

rootRelativeUrl is actually a method on the UrlHelper class, thus it's not available on elements I don't think.

Try this:

{# Use any Craft "helper" classes in your Twig templates by creating them #}
{% set urlHelper = create(
) %}
{# You can then call any of their methods, e.g.: #}
{{ set relative = urlHelper.rootRelativeUrl(entry.url) }}

(or you could get the url from craft.request.url for example)

  • Thanks! You put me on the right track. This worked: {% set relativeUrl = craft.app.request.url %} Apr 10 '20 at 16:22
  • Well LOL yes, that's the easier way. I got side tracked by the rootRelativeUrl thing. Also I think in Craft 2 the request url was the full, not relative url...but I might be mis remembering. Apr 10 '20 at 22:42
