Day #4 of a #30 day startup

Lesson learnt today: I still hate css! :)

For those who code in cakephp, and want to highlight the current tab (yet are not extracting menu items from a db table) the following may be of interest.
In the controller function (remember this has to be done for each function that renders the layout and menu element)

if ($category_id==1) {
} elseif ($category_id==2) {
} elseif ($category_id==3) {

This means that in the element I can set a class for the current tab, via php - unfortunately the sanitisation of code means I can't show it here. Basically the php will echo class="current" within the li> tag if activetab is set to the relevant value.
