Link_to with span

Hi there,

I want to create a link with a ‘span’ inside such as


I’m trying to do it so that it highlights the current navigation, using
something I found online I have this.

def section_link(name,options)
if options[:action] == @current_action and options[:controller] ==
link_to(name, options, :class => ‘on’)

So I effectively want the link_to to be able to contain the span, any

Much appreciated!


The first argument to link_to can be any text you want, so include a
span if you want:

link_to( content_tag( :span, “Hello”), options )

That being said, if you want the span to include everything inside the
tag, why not just apply the styling to the tag, as in the
example you found?
