php - how to set a page active automatically when it is loaded


i want to change the active class when each page loaded. my jquery code is

$(document).ready(function () {
$('.nav li a').click(function(e) {

    $('.nav li').removeClass('active');


and my html code is

<ul class="nav nav-stacked bg-nav">
            <li class="active"><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_home"><span     class="glyphicon glyphicon-home"></span>&nbsp;Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_student">Student</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_teacher">Teacher</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_parent">Parent</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_subject">Subject</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_class">Class</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_exam">Exam</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_mark_attendence">Marks</a>    </li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_grade">Exam Grade</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_routine">Class Routine</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_payment">Payment</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_library">Library</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_transport">Transport</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_notice">Notice Board</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_settings">Settings</a></li>
            <li><a href="<? echo base_url(); ?>index.php/admin/admin_profile">Profile</a></li>

the problems are 1. it does not shows the first page ie. home.. as active. others are okey 2. it does not redirect to the url defined in the href.

1 Answer: 

The logic can be used in Codeigniter using PHP, I think you don't need to use jquery here like,

if you are calling admin_student function in controller then pass active class for that li like,

// in controller

And in the view page use a switch-case like,

$activeClass=isset($activeClass) ? $activeClass : 'admin_home';
$admin_student='';//make variables for all li
    case 'admin_student':

And add this variable to your li like,

<li class="<?php echo $admin_home;?>"><a href="...">Home</a></li>
<li class="<?php echo $admin_student;?>"><a href="...">Student</a></li>

This will solve your first problem, and the second problem occurs because of using e.preventDefault() so don't use it if you want redirection of URLs.
