How to get the current URL in Magento

PHP has its own methods to get URLS, but Magento has some wrapper methods that you should really use. Here’s a summary.

Happy Halloween everyone! Here are a few Magento code snippets from my notes.

Get current URL in Magento

$current_url = $this->helper('core/url')->getCurrentUrl();

Get Magento root URL

// base url of magento
$base_url = Mage::getBaseUrl();

Get Magento Media Directory

// url of media directory 
$media_url = Mage::getBaseUrl('media'); 

Check if Magento URL is secure https

// Is the page https:// ?
$isSecure = Mage::app()->getStore()->isCurrentlySecure();
