What is the quick and easy way to update a navigation bar on a multipage website. I want the page to show where you are as well, currenly I am using a css id to keep track of what page you are on.
<div class="nav"> <ul> <li id="current"><a href="some_url/">Home</a></li> <!-- CSS will display this link differently--> <li><a href="some_url">Somewhere else</a></li> <li><a href="some_url">Somewhere else2</a></li> <li><a href="some_url"">Somewhere else3</a></li> </ul> </div>
That is the example I would use to show the current page with a css selector. I am familiar with SSI, but how can you maintain a different style for the link that you are on? Is there a way to script it, a different language to alleviate this issue or am I missing something simple?
