viewacl.tpl add view name
28 October 2011, 2:03 AM
I am adding some extra variables to be passed with the secret URL i.e. http://secretURL?somethingelse?anotherthing
In particular I am looking to pass the view name i.e. Tom's Resume as part of this. However I can't figure out how to access this in the viewacl.tpl
Can anybody help?

You can't access POST and GET variables from the template directly, you have to catch them in the php file and then re-define for use in the tempalte:
// Fetch url parameter $somethingelse = param_variable('somethingelse', ''); ... // Define template variable $smarty->assign('somethingelse', $somethingelse);
Now you can access $somethingelse in the tpl file.
Though I am not sure if you really need to pass view name as a parameter. There should be a chance to determine that in the code, unless you want to pass absolutely random text.
