In Drupal 8 I try to get the absolute site url in a Views custom text field.

I added {{ url('view.frontpage.page_1') }} which gives me example.com/node

Drupal docs say {{ url('view.frontpage') }} would do it, but it just gives me wsod and throws an error like so:

AH01071: Got error 'PHP message: Uncaught PHP Exception Symfony\\Component\\Routing\\Exception\\RouteNotFoundException: "Route "view.frontpage" does not exist." at /../../docroot/core/lib/Drupal/Core/Routing/RouteProvider.php line 187\n'

Any ideas?

The documentation could be out of date. Check your router table for the name of the route. In my Drupal 8 site it is view.frontpage.page_1.

  • I understand that each module can have a .routing.yml file. But I don't know what you mean by router table. What do you mean by it and where can i find it?

  • It's a database table. Commented Nov 4, 2016 at 7:22
