Hi Forum,

here is my issue:
SS 2.4.0 rc3

Nested URls are enabled.
On a custom Pagetype there is a method 'details', that should display a DataObject Record.

Because of using nested URLs the URL can be:

inside the Controller

    public function details()

        //$UrlSegment = Director::URLParam('ID');
        // Line above does not work - content of $URLSegment is 'level3'

       // the following line works - but why ?
      $UrlSegment = $this->getRequest()->param('ID');
