That is my js for my tabs and as the title article entails i want the current tab to be active even after reload.
for example my webpage has 12 tabs for each month (January, february ... etc) and as for the tab content there is a form, table and save button. say i go to the february tab and fill in the form and then click save, i want it to still stay on the feb tab page instead of reverting back to january tab page which is what it does now. how do i achieve this??

this is a sample of my html tab code:

<ul id="tabs">
      <li><a href="#jan">January</a></li>
      <li><a href="#feb">February</a></li>
      <li><a href="#march">March</a></li>
</ul>

<div class="tabContent" id="jan">
    <form method="post" action="income.php">
    <table border="1" rules="groups" cellpadding="10px;" class="tableincome">
        <thead>
            <th>Monthly Salary</th>
            <th></th>
            <th>RM</th>
        </thead>
        <tr>
            <td>Basic Salary</td>
            <td></td>
            <td><center><input type="text" name="basic" size="11" placeholder="0" value="<?php if(isset($_POST['basic'])){echo htmlentities($_POST['basic']);} ?>"></center></td>
        </tr>
    </table>
    <input type="submit" value="Save" class="jansave" name="jansave">
</div>

thanks in advance!

easiest way is to stop using the submit button that resubmits your form.

use a <button> and call a phpsave program using JQuery.

If you dont want to do it that way then when you submit your form your javascript has to keep track of what your current tab is and NOT run init() again.
