Add-On Type(s)



The Last Segment extension creates a new global variable which fetches and renders the current last segment in a URL.

The addition of a {last_segment} variable can be extremely useful for a number of reasons. The main benefit is that it allows you to create the appearance of sub-templates and hierarchical page structures. For example, you could have a ‘pages’ weblog and by setting the url_title parameter of the weblog:entries tag to {last_segment}, create a structure of: /head/shoulders/knees/toes/

Update 1.0.2 adds the {last_segment_np} variable, which is set to ignore pagination.
It also adds {current_url}, outputting the URL of the current page.

A handly little extension. I’m building a site where I need to change content (headers & categories etc) based on the last segment.

I have one Fresh Variable with some PHP inside which is making decisions for all the pages on my site. Would have been more difficult without this.
