I use the following code at the top of each page...


<?php
$pageTitle = 'Reseller Hosting';
include 'header.php';
?>

Then in header.php


<!-- Menu-->
<ul id="menu" class="sf-menu">
<li <?php if ($pageTitle=="Home") echo 'class="current"'; ?>><a href="index.php">Home</a></li>
<li <?php if ($pageTitle=="Web Hosting") echo 'class="current"'; ?>>
<a href="#">Hosting</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="webhosting.php">Web Hosting</a></li>
<li><a href="resellerhosting.php">Reseller Hosting</a></li>
<li><a href="email.php">Email Hosting</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li <?php if ($pageTitle=="Virtual Private Servers") echo 'class="current"'; ?>>
<a href="#">Servers</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="vps.php">Virtual Private Servers</a></li>
<li><a href="dedicatedservers.php">Dedicated Servers</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li <?php if ($pageTitle=="Domain Names") echo 'class="current"'; ?>><a href="domains.php">Domain Names</a></li>
<li <?php if ($pageTitle=="SSL Certificates") echo 'class="current"'; ?>><a href="ssl.php">SSL Certificates</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.php">Contact</a></li>
</ul>
<!-- End Menu-->

Now, how would I make it so that the Hosting category is highlighted if they're on Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and Email Hosting, and Servers category is highlighting if they're on either Virtual Private Servers or Dedicated servers?

Thanks.

so you want "<a href="#">Hosting</a>" to be highlighted so people see it from the start?

The PHP needed is there, now you just need the CSS for .current.

Or are you saying the PHP isn't placing the .current on the tags?

OR, theres a neat thing called JQUERY. If URL contains "vps" THEN add class to LI tag. Google it.

First method:

var page = "vpsPage";
$(function() {
if ( page.indexOf('vps') > -1 ) {
    alert('VPS');
    $('#ul-tags').append('<li class="active"><a href="vps.html">VPS</a></li>');
}
});



Second method:

Code:
$(function() {
if ( document.location.href.indexOf('vps') > -1 ) {
    // Run JS code here, ex:
   $(".li-vps").html("This just got replaced due to VPS in URL.");
}
});

No you all have it wrong. the code works perfectly fine! But the problem is that I have drop downs, I just need to figure out how to make the parent li current if they open a child.

<?php if ($pageTitle=="Web Hosting" || $pageTitle=="Reseller Hosting" || $pageTitle=="Email Hosting") echo 'class="current"'; ?>
I think this is what you want.

No offense OP, but you really need to work on your consistency.  Jumping back and forth between string formats, for example, will just create a headache for whoever's auditing your code.

The advice to change up " to ' is solid.  No problem though :D

More like so we understand what you want @shovenose so we don't have to guess.

Provide more info instead of less.
