OK , I have a Custom Theme generated by Bootstrap. Currently I just added a Navbar (navigation to the theme and I am having trouble on setting ACTIVE navbar in each active page.(by adding active class to the li) For example if I am in Contact us page how I can force the navbar to make the contact us nav active! I alreadt tried

<li <?php is_page( 'Home' ){echo 'class="active"'}> Home</li>
<li <?php is_page( 'About us' ){echo 'class="active"'}> About us</li>

can you please let me know how I can do this?

Looks like its just your PHP formatting, you have the right idea! try this:

<pre class="prettyprint"><code class="language-php">

if (is_page( 'Home' ) {
elseif (is_page( 'About' ) {
else {


<li class="<?php echo $class; ?>"Home</li>
<li class="<?php echo $class; ?>"About</li>

  • Hi Frank I like your idea and look logical to me but it is not working! I mean there must be syntax error since I am getting white blank page from WordPress! – Mona Coder Nov 18 '13 at 19:05
  • Does anyone have any Idea about this? Please? – Mona Coder Nov 19 '13 at 2:11
