I'd like to decorator to augment searchable fields only if the request is within the cms / admin section of the site. So far I do the detection as follows;
if(substr(Controller::curr()->getRequest()->getURL(), 0, 6) == 'admin/')
There's a few flaws I see in this;
1. It is long.
2. It is hardcoded & I don't account for the admin section changing from 'admin/'. (e.g. it doesn't use a static method to determine the actual base CMS url).
Is there a better & more recommended method?

I've no idea if it's the recommended way of doing it or not but I use
if (is_subclass_of(Controller::curr(), "LeftAndMain"))
This won't break if the URL changes but if the base class changes you're screwed.

I have decorated the LeftAndMain class to manipulate certain things. I would register if I have passed through there in order to tell if I was in the admin section.
since you might read this - Brice - I' really appreciate a response on your excellent looking sortweight module - I've been trying to use it on a fresh 2.4.5 install with ModelAdmin - if it is designed for that (or I'm missing something basic) please let me know...
