How to get the permalink of is_home()?

  • SOLVED

Hi There,

I'm building a custom function for breadcrumbs and I need to retrieve the permalink value for the is_home() function.

I went to 'Settings > Reading' and set a 'static front page' and chose my 'posts page'.

is_home() is working as expected, returning the page name for my 'posts page' which was manually set up above.

I just need to know how to retrieve the url or permalink of the is_home() function?

btw: bloginfo(url) and bloginfo(siteurl) are both returning the URL of the static homepage. Can't seem to figure out how to return the value of the posts page?

I greatly appreciate your help.

Cheers.

Use the home_url() function:

[[LINK href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/home_url"]]http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/home_url[[/LINK]]

home_url() is returning the URL of the static homepage (ie: www.xxxx.com)

looking to retrieve my 'posts page' url which is: www.xxxx.com/blog

can you tell me how your hard-coded post page permalink looks like? you can hide domain name i.e. www.xxxx.com/posts/ ?

You could use a simple php code
<a href="<?php ($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']=='/') ;?>">your home page link</a>

<?php ($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']=='/') ;?>

I'm not sure about your code, but I think get_permalink($id) maybe solve your problem http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_permalink
