django tutorial Check for request.GET variable in the template

templates folder django (2)

Check if you have django.core.context_processors.request in your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS in! If not put it there, or add request yourself to your rendered context!

I want to display a certain in the template only if a certain GET variable is set....I thought using {% if request.get.my_var %} would work, but it's not giving me the results.

Variables are case-sensitive - so, assuming as lazerscience points out that you actually have the request object in the context, you would need to use {% if request.GET.my_var %}.
