Hey Kalileo drye,

I was having the same trouble with subnested urls but wrote this fix;

	public function getForumThread() {
		if(preg_match('/(?!(show)(\/).*)([0-9].*)(?!(?).*)/', $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], $id))
			return DataObject::get_by_id("ForumThread", $id[0]);
			return false;

Im sure there's probably a cleaner way of doing it using SS functions -but it seems to work ok as a fix for 2.4

Hi Matt, it wasn't me who has seen this problem, it was "drye" - but thanks anyway!

Thank you for the fix. I've not tried it yet, but will very soon. I wonder if Will is working on a fix as well or if he would be willing to incorporate this fix into the code base.

Thanks again!
