Add Active Navigation Class Based on URL


Add Active Navigation Class Based on URL

Let’s take an example.

You have a menu something like this:

    <li><a href="/">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="/about/">About</a></li>
    <li><a href="/clients/">Clients</a></li>
    <li><a href="/contact/">Contact Us</a></li>

and you are on the About page where your URL is:

Write the following Jquery to display active menu.

$(function() {
  $('nav a[href^="/' + location.pathname.split("/")[1] + '"]').addClass('active');

Jquery find the active page URL and add the active class to the <a> tag.
