get var? after hashtag from url

I used to have  a wordpress plugin that, when being used, would include a ? in the url.

I would test for that var it used, and adjust my code accordingly, to display certain things, like this:

if ( isset( $wp_query->query_vars['sample'] ) ) {

I just updated the plugin and now, instead of having a ?, then have a hashtag, and then the var I need to look for.

Apparently, my 'if' is not triggered anymore, so I'm thinking the change makes it not a query var.

So... with it as a hashtag, how can I write an if for it?

Thanks for any help,

Chris

Anything after the hashtag is only available at the browser and is not sent back to the server.
Your only real option is, depending on the scenario, use js to get the hashtag and store it in an input, for example if you were submitting a form, so you can grab the input value at the server.

Ohh... bummer. Yeh, going to have to rethink this.

The plugin author has been very receptive to feedback, I'll ask her to see if she can give me a better solution.

Thank you very much!
