Hi guys,

I've upgraded the articles section on my site from ASP classic to C#, and I'm having trouble isolating a string on the URL to select the page number. At present, my site URL would look like this:

Sitename/ArticleName/1

This would give me page 1. If I change the URL to:

Sitename/ArticleName/2

I want to be able to view the second page - can anyone show me how to isolate the number after the split and then declare it as a variable in order to use it in my select statement?

Any help much appreciated, as ever.

select substring(
                          @test,
                                    len(@test) - charindex('/', reverse(@test)) + 2,
                                    charindex('/', reverse(@test)))

I should have mentioned that I'm using Razor Syntax, is it possible to translate the above accordingly?
