View Full Version : highlight current anchor hash? jQuery

07-19-2008, 02:51 PM
Click this link to see what I am trying to do: http://www.gulaab.co.uk/test/menu.php

When you click View Main Courses >> (http://"http://www.gulaab.co.uk/test/menu.php")

<a href="#tandoori" class="next">View Main Courses &gt;&gt;</a>
it makes all of the menu on the left red.. I just want the next item on the menu to highlight (Tandoori dishes)

<li class="main_courses"><a href="#tandoori" class="selected">Tandoori dishes</a></li>

This is the jQuery that makes everything red:

jQuery(function( $ ){
$('#gulaab_menu ul li a').removeClass('selected');
$('#gulaab_menu ul li a').toggleClass('selected');

Any ideas how to get this working so only Tandoori dishes is highlighted and not the whole menu?

More of an explanation of what I want to do:

After clicking view main courses you will see Chief Specialities >> and so when you click Chief Specialities I want Chief Specialities to highlight on the left menu.. You will also see << Starters in the Tandoori page so when you click << Starters I want the Starters link on the left menu to highlight..

Any ideas how to get this working?

noone can help?
maybe this site is better to use for an example..

when you click the arrows >>
i want the next section in the left hand menu to change color.. So Section 1-b should turn red once clicked on >> this will give more of an indication to the user of what page they are on..

Any ideas how to do this???????:confused::confused::confused:

I found a great page that give numerous downloadable examples of how to change the text inside an anchor using jQuery. They are really helpful for web 2.0 and web 3.0 sites.
