How to get request referer path?


I need the path of the referrer. I don't want the domain name. For example, if the referrer is http://www.google.com/adsense I want /adsense.


Answers:


request.referer returns a string, but you can use Ruby's URI Module to wrap it and then simply ask it for its path:

if URI(request.referer).path == '/adsense'
