Add-On Type(s)



Creates {current_url}, {total_url_segments}, and {last_url_segment} global variables based on the current page.

Current is small extension for ExpressionEngine 2 that grabs some useful information about the current page and adds them as global variables.


Drop the ‘current’ folder inside of your third_party directory. Activate the extension through the Add-Ons → Extensions menu.


Current creates some global variables you can use to look cool.


The current URL of the page. Ex:


The total number of URL segments. Ex: For, it would be ‘2’.


Returns the last URL segment. Ex: For For, it would return ‘windchimes’.

I believe a couple of these variables are native in EE 2.4 now, but I needed {uri_string} for a complex site. I sent a pull request on Github and Adam added it (good dev response). Does what it says with little overhead.

Great ! It should simply be added to the EE code base.
