[category.slug] in text module
how can i access [category.slug] in a text module?

You'll need to use this:

<?php echo $category->slug; ?>

that worked. how about the current page? I would like to pass the url to a php function

You can find all of the variables you have access to by adding this code to your view:

<pre><?php print_r($category); ?></pre>

here is what it returned. look at on the bottom of the page

dfr_null Object
[is_null] => 1

Eric March 19th, 2012 01:05 PM

That will only return something IF you are in a category. If there is no category, the $category object will be NULL.

yeah, I just noticed that. I changed the variable to $server and it didn't return anything. Is server spelled server or Server?

Eric March 19th, 2012 01:22 PM

It's case insensitive as far as I know.

lesljr March 19th, 2012 01:34 PM

ok. I tried to use $server as a parm and it didn't return anything.

<pre><?php print_r($server); ?></pre>

I tried take [server.url type='fullpage'] and convert to $server->url[fullpage] with no sucess.
