$config->requestPath() method

Available since version 3.0.175.


if(strpos($config->requestPath(), '/processwire/') === 0) {
  // current request path starts with “/processwire/”
if($config->requestPath('/processwire/')) {
  // the text “/processwire/” appears somewhere in current request path
if($config->requestPath([ 'foo', 'bar', 'baz' ])) {
  // current request has one or more of 'foo', 'bar', 'baz' in the path
