aikau page and pubSub help

I am developing an aikau page - with a number of widgets, including a document list and document preview.  All pretty successfully thanks to Dave Draper's great tutorial.


The final piece of the page is a widget that displays content from Alfresco.  This I can do by "calling" KnowledgeWidget.js, which gets the html content I want to display and uses domConstruct to build the widget content.  At the moment the path to the Alfresco content is hard coded.


What I want to do is call my aikau page with a parameter  ie. http://localhost:8081/share/page/hdp/ws/knowledge?page=Policy

and pass this parameter to my KnowledgeWidget.js

page =;  gets me the parameter.

And I believe I need to use pubSub to get the parameter to the widget - but I can't figure out how to do it..  Or if I can do it.


I have followed Dave's tutorials, particularly the DataLists with the pubSub and the basic sub/sub in Ole's examples as well.


Any advice will be greatly appreciated


thanks, Jon
