I'd like to understand how to obtain the word "author" from the url as with
I am using wordpress - in order to always realize that the URL will appear the same as that. I have used Regex to obtain everything following the "/" but that is an excessive amount of. Here's that code.
preg_match("/[^\/]+$/",$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], $matches); $author = $matches; // test
$key = array_keys($_GET); $key = $key;
$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] should have the ability to obtain the 'author=seth-godin' part, then just explode at &lifier (if multiple parameters), or at = and employ the very first value i.e.
explode('=',$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']. zero index of this array = author. (much like below)
array_secrets($_GET) will return array(=>'author')
