I don’t know how I never found this before… You can use {$smarty.get.<var>} to get the URL variable you want. For instance, you can use the following ones in WordPress MultiUser:

  • year
  • monthnum
  • day
  • name
  • paged/page
  • category_name
  • wpblog

Unfortunately, these variables don’t seem to be set with Pages, rather than Posts. However, this has given me some tips as to how to fix the .htaccess RewriteRule problems causing Blogsome not to display subsequent pages of monthly archives. Possibly something to do with the fact it uses page, rather than paged, and that for some reason it parses the word page as the name of the post. This looks like not a .htaccess bug at all, now that I think of it.
