condition using part of a URL

Hi. I'm wondering if it's possible to write a condition, similar to the one above, but which evaluates to true if the first part of the URL is a match. For example, if the URL was http:\\www.greenhorn.com\thread3354 and I want to test for just http:\\www.greenhorn.com. In relation to the location property. Thanks in advance.

You mean take one string and see if a second string starts with the contents of that first string? Sure, I don't see why not. The basic code is no more than 3 lines long.

I was a bit mixed up. I didn't know if there was a property I could test or if I had to parse the string.


Thanks!
