I'm developing plugin for vanilla.I want to know how to get the parameters in plugin to know what controller/method/forum/thread/reply has been read or operated in current page?
Now I can only get some info by the $_REQUEST['p'] parameter,but it is not enough,it is not reliable in some rewrite rule applied sites.

I need judge these info in my plugin,so I can control what need to do in my plugin.

    what you are looking for is called RequestArguments, you are right in thinking you should avoid using $_REQUEST or $_GETas this should be abstracted.

    it depends on contents but usually in a controller hook you would use

    $Sender->RequestArgs it is an array of arguments. so if you have example request:


    RequestArgs will contain [param1,param2]

    If you just want to the check the request method use '$Sender->RequestMethod that will contain love method. If there is basically no method it will usefully be 'index', but you can debug to find out.

    If you want the controller name, such as when you are using Base_ you can use

    strtolower($Sender->ControllerName) which will produce discussioncontroller

    If you just want the request path use $Sender->Request->Path() or Gdn::Request()->Path() for short this will contain /discussion/love/param1/param2

    grep is your friend.
