Hi guys,

Is it possible to use a wildcard when evaluating a UrlSegment?

I have a form application and once a submission occurs the user always ends up on a page the ends with .../finished (e.g. I'd like to add some specific content that only shows up on the /finished pages.

I'm looking for something such as this to add to my

<% if URLSegment = */finished* %>
Do something
<% else %>
Do something else
<% end_if %>

Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Nope, can't do wildcard searches so you'd have to write custom function on your 'Page' class to perform the operation.

For example

function MatchesFinish() {
return preg_match('/\/finished/', $this->Link());

<% if MatchesFinish %>
<% end_if %>

Thanks Willr. That is pretty much what I thought.
