Hi and thank you in advance for your help

I have a url like this http://www.blabla/list.php?city=taormina 

I would have something like "There are 13 results in TAORMINA" recalling the field city (Taormina in this case) from url. Is it possible?

Hi Orazio,

How are you generating the URL with the city name?

Thanks,

HI Orazio,

To get this result:

"There are 13 results in TAORMINA

Try using this code:

<?php if (@$_REQUEST['city']) : ?>
There are <?php echo $newsMetaData['totalRecords']; ?> results in <?php echo $_REQUEST['city']; ?><br />
<?php endif; ?>

Replace $newsMetaData with the name of your section editor (table).
