I really need help with implementing a feature in my menu.
The menu is build with an unordered list. I want two things to happen with my menu when you click on an item:
1. The selected item should get the class “current”
2. The item before it in the list should get the class “before-current”
I know how to set the “current” id for the selected item using php. I do it like this:
<li<?php if ($thisPage==”Page1″)
echo ” class=\”current\””; ?>><span>Page1</span>
<li<?php if ($thisPage==”Page2″)
echo ” class=\”current\””; ?>><span>Page2</span>
<li<?php if ($thisPage==”Page3″)
echo ” class=\”current\””; ?>><span>Page3</span>
What I don’t know is how to set the “before-current” class to the item before it.
Can someone help me with the php code for this? The code for: “If thisPage==”Page2” then set “Page2” to “current” and set “Page1” to “before-current”.
Anyone? Thank you very much.
