Help with Navigation

I’m currently using CSS to style my navigational menu. I also have
jquery at my disposal. The basic structure is like this:

Active Menu Item

My question: What would be the best way to call the current page, and
using some kind of conditional statement to say (in theory):

“If the current page is this, then put it in the H2 heading and exclude
it from the unordered list.”

Thanks in advance for any help at all.

Your CSS and HTML are irrelevant. This is a Rails question.

Have you looked at current_page? ?

“If the current page is this, then put it in the H2 heading and exclude

Don’t remove it from the list. Navigation menus are least confusing
when they’re consistent.

Best,

Thanks. current_page? worked great. I think it can be refactored but
for now it’s working the way I want it.

I basically did:

<% if current_page?( :controller => ‘example’ )
…HTML goes here…
<% end %>

For the H2 “active” area, and then left the UL list with all menu
options like you suggested.

Thanks as always, Marnen.

Hi there,

for your next project, you might want to check out the simple-
navigation plugin which does everything for you (except the styling/
css):

All the best for 2010
