Dynamic Widgets
display widget coming from specific url (2 posts)

    Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to use some kind of conditional to:

    "only show a widget when some visits the page coming from a specific URL within the same website"

    So we have page X with a set urls leading to other pages that have to display specific widgets. When visiting those same pages through other urls within the site the widgets are not to be shown.

    Any ideas on this?

    Thanks!

    You are referring to the so called "referer". This is unfortunately very bad practice and not reliable. Everybody can tweak that very easily.

    When you stay in the same site, it would be possible by having an internal tracker or so. I like the idea, but I think it wouldn't be used very widely within DW. Maybe this is nice for a poll to see interest in this. So, I did create a poll for this.
