Is there a way i can get the_permalink as a variable? I need to build an info window with it but it wont appear in the $infoWindow variable...

    $link = the_permalink($post->ID); // prints out into html
    $infoWindow = '<div><h2><a href="'.$link.'">'.$post->post_title.'</a></h2></div>';
<script type="text/javascript">
    marker = [<?=$v_latitude?>, <?=$v_longitude?>,"",'<?=$infoWindow?>'];

best, Dc


Use get_permalink() instead. (Codex ref.)

Per the WordPress function-naming convention, most functions have two forms: the_*() and get_*(); the the_*() functions will print the output, and the get_*() functions will return the output.
