    How to get IContent from the Url or by route

    I am trying to get the IContent from the URL

    For Example

    I have url http://localhost:8080/abc/xyz then how to get the IContent from the url above in umbraco 7 and above.

    I have tried

    var content = UmbracoContext.Current.ContentCache.GetByRoute("http://localhost:8080/abc/xyz ");


    var content = UmbracoContext.Current.ContentCache.GetByRoute("/abc/xyz ");

    but no luck.

    Hi Keyur

    The UmbracoContext.Current.ContentCache.GetByRoute accepts a simple path eg your second option:

    var content = UmbracoContext.Current.ContentCache.GetByRoute("/abc/xyz");


    however if you have a domain set on your Umbraco tree, then the route needs to include the Id of the domain node in order to work eg

    var content = UmbracoContext.Current.ContentCache.GetByRoute("123/abc/xyz");

    Where 123 is the id of the node the domain is set on

    Have a look at Tim Geyssens' UmbracoPageNotFoundHandler plugin source as a good example of this in use:

    hope that helps

    Thanks Marc,

    This really helps.

    Though, when we have multiple content at root lever / same level at the site and no domain associated with it. In such case how to find the content similar to example above.

    Thanks, Keyur

    Hi Keyur

    I've not tried to get a route when there are multiple top level nodes without domains.

    I've just create a dummy site based on the Fanoe starter kit, and created multiple such top level nodes.

    I'm finding in this circumstance the

    var content = UmbracoContext.Current.ContentCache.GetByRoute("/abc/xyz");

    approach works.
