Hi,

I wish to create a page control (in the Includes section) that would check to see if the current page is the Home page, but I'm not sure how to go about it.

What I need to do is very simple, I just want to switch out "<body id = "page">" with "<body id="home_page">" in my Page.ss page type.

My guess is that I would create a page type, say PageID.ss in the Includes folder, place an if-else page control statement in the PageID.ss page, then place an "<% incude PageID%>" statement in my Page.ss file.

The problem is that I'm not sure which page controls I need use in the PageID.ss page.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Im guessing you can use $URLSegment to do this which is a built in page control so you can do something like [code php]
<body id="<% if URLSegement = home %>home_<% end_if %>page">

Try that :P This page is handy for seeing some methods you can use - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=built-in-page-controls

Hi willr,

I was able to do it another way, but I will try it your way as it seems much cleaner.

Thanks for the quick response.
