Add-On Type(s)



Provides the following global variables: {current_url}, {all_segments}, {parent_segment}

Provides the following global variables:

{current_url} - prints full http:// URL of the current page viewed
{all_segments} - returns /segment-1/segment-2/segment-3/.../
{parent_segment} - will return the current page’s parent segment, which is it’s url_title

This was from a plugin originally written by Brian Litzinger I merely converted it to work on EE2 and I take no credit.

Worked OK until EE 2.2.1. See this thread in EE’s Forums:

Current Url causes the CP to produce PHP errors.

The Plugin Currentlee works similar to Current URL.
