Just a quick question, hopefully somebody can clear this up for me please.
I have my navigation menu in a php include file being expressed in each page.
<?php include("includes/menu.php"); ?>
I also have my menu styled in my CSS sheet. However, the problem lies on the link being 'active'. Meaning, when I'm at the 'Home' page then the 'Home' button should be highlighted and so on etc.
Now, how can this be done using CSS so that the current page corresponds with the certain button, and thus highlight that button?...
I think I know one way, but I failed doing it as I'm not quite sure / certain how to lay it in the stylesheet.
--- Give the body tag of each individual PHP page a unique ID, for example: body id="home" for the home page. Furthermore, give each li anchor link in the php include file add the appropriate unique ID <li><a href="home.php" id="home">Home</a></li>. Then, when it comes to the CSS I'm a little sticky ??
That way, each page / body will have it's own unique id and thus each link will have it's own unique id for the current page to correspond with the CSS, and each active link can be altered and differ if wanted.
