wildcard for url to use pagecolor (/blah.php?act=show&pa

hi there!

i was thinkin' about something and i don't know if it's possible in v5. what i'd like to have is the possibility to use a wildcard in the urls.

let me explain what i mean:

i have a guestbook on my page for example. so here's the code for a menu:

with(milonic=new menuname("guestbook")){

if i call "" 'pagecolor' and 'pagebgcolor' is set correctly. but if i call the second page "" (which is not in the menu and can't be there because i can't update it all the time) 'pagecolor' and 'pagebgcolor' are not set, because the url doesn't match the one in the menu.

now, here's my question:

why can't i use wildcards in the urls? it would be perfect if i could change the code to

with(milonic=new menuname("guestbook")){

the browser should call the "" then (without the asteriks), but subpages would still match the given url.

is there any way to do this? if not, wouldn't it be a great feature?

any help/answers would be appreciated :roll:

I like the idea, its definetly got some useage worth. I have heard a couple other people have trouble with the URLs due to query string problems. Maybe not in the initial release, but an addon in the near future?
