I have a twig template for a custom block, I want the entire block to be wrapped in a link. I'm using the link field, but I'm not sure how to get the url from the field within the twig template. This seems like it should work, but doesn't:

{{ content.field_link.0.getUri() }}

I've looked at url() and path(), but they are dealing with routing, so I don't think that's what I'm looking for.

Note, I would like to use either external or internal links in the field.

Ah, I was missing the ['#url'] part of the array. In order to get the url from the link field I called:

{{ content.field_link.0['#url'].getUri() }}

I do miss the ability to copy-paste from dpm().

  • If you miss dpm() and you haven't found devel's kint submodule, you should look into it.

  • I use kint, but it doesn't give me an easily copiable string to "dig down" to variable
