Codeigniter--add “active” css class to link, how to?


Tags: php,css,codeigniter

Problem :

What's the quickest and easiest way to add the "active" class to a link, so it can be styled? I'm developing an app in CI, and I'd like a quick easy way to do this automatically.

jQuery is an option too...



Solution :

You should really be using the CodeIgniter URI Class to do this instead of the $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']

$this->uri->uri_string()


if ( $this->uri->uri_string() == '/contact' )

^^ that is the preferred way to do things due to some complexities that can happen with codeigniter's routing features
