I'm trying to link to a Drupal path like "Contact Us" in my Twig template. I've tried this code in my Twig template but I can't get any result.

<a href="{{ contact }}">{{ 'Contact'|t }}</a>

As well as this:

<a href="{{ path('contact') }}">{{ 'Contact'|t }}</a>
<a href="{{ url('contact') }}">{{ 'Contact'|t }}</a>

What is the correct way to link to an internal Drupal path in Twig?

The path() & url() Drupal Twig functions expect a route name and will not work with a Drupal path. For a relative/absolute path to /contact, you can use path()/url() respectively with the contact.site_page route:

<a href="{{ path('contact.site_page') }}">{{ 'Contact'|t }}</a>    
<a href="{{ url('contact.site_page') }}">{{ 'Contact'|t }}</a>

If you don't know your route name, what you're looking for is link()

{{ link('Contact'|t, 'base:contact', { 'class':[] }) }}

See this d.o. page for more explanation about these 3 functions and their differences.

  • Thank you so much for your help and attention, and if you change this code to 'Contact'|t Will be better :) Jul 24, 2016 at 0:02
  • Done. It now matches the question.

  • If it is an internal link, wouldn't it have a route, and therefore be preferable to use the route name instead of the base: scheme?

  • That's a good point, I presumed OP didn't know his route so I offered link() as an alternative.
