Alright there is no debate includes are the best way to code a nav right? Well, what if someone wants to indicate to the use what page they’re on? Or as I will call it the active page. Just include a script to the top of each page comparing strings with the window location, and if its true; make it look like the active page. I’m horrible with words but hopefully this is making sense. Now I’ll let the code speak:
var contact = RegExp("contact");
if(contact.test(window.location) == true)
Nothing to complex- Just comparing our variable string of contact and comparing it with the window location. If there is a match then you attach an “.active” class to it. I know its nothing big; but a simple trick helps every now and again.
