Codeigniter--add “active” css class to link, how to?
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...
You should really be using the CodeIgniter URI Class to do this instead of the $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']
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
