I continue to have problems with getting my sprite to display correctly.  The site I'm working on is:

http://pvcc.inthooz.me/

Here's my javascript

$('#navlist li a').click(function() {
    $('#navlist a').removeClass('selected');
    $(this).addClass('selected');
}); 

Open in new window


My html:
 
  <div class="sprite">
					  <ul id="navlist">
							 <li id="home" ><a class="nav"  href="/" ${page == '/home/' ? 'class="active"' : ''}"></a></li>
							  <li  id="about" ><a class="nav" href="/about-us/" ${page == '/about-us/' ? 'class="active"' : ''}"></a></li>
							  <li  id="new"><a class="nav" href="/new/"></a></li>
							  <li  id="ministries"><a class="nav" href="/ministries/"></a></li>
							  <li  id="mission"><a class="nav" href="/missions/"></a></li>
							  <li  id="watch"><a class="nav" href="/watch-listen/"></a></li>
							  <li  id="members"><a class="nav" href="/members/"></a></li>
							  <li  id="contact"><a class="nav" href="/contact-us/"></a></li>
							   
					  </ul>
			    </div>

Open in new window


My Css:
#navlist li, #navlist a{height:66px;display:inline-block;}
 
#home a:link { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -16px 0; width: 78px; height: 66px; }
#home a:hover { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -16px -66px; width: 78px; height: 66px; }
#home a:active { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -16px -132px; width: 78px; height: 66px; }
#home a.selected { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -16px -132px; width: 78px; height: 66px; }

#about a:link { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -101px 0; width: 94px; height: 66px; }
#about a:hover { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png)  no-repeat -101px -66px; width: 94px; height: 66px; }
#about a:active { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -101px -132px; width: 94px; height: 66px; }
#about a.selected { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -101px -132px; width: 94px; height: 66px; }

#new a:link { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -201px 0; width: 106px; height: 66px; }
#new a:hover { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png)  no-repeat -201px -66px; width: 106px; height: 66px; }
#new a:active { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -201px -132px; width: 106px; height: 66px; }
#new a.selected { background: url(images/nav-sprite.png) no-repeat -201px -132px; width: 106px; height: 66px; }

The jquery you posted here is different from what you have on your page:

Page:
$('#navlist a').click(function() {
$('#navlist a').removeClass('selected');
$(this).addClass('selected');
}); 

Open in new window


$('#navlist li a').click(function() {
    $('#navlist a').removeClass('selected');
    $(this).addClass('selected');
}); 

Open in new window

I'm trying to keep the active tab until a different page is clicked.

The CSS that effects the 'selected' class is commented out, so it has no effect!

In order to do what your trying to do, your going to have to do one of 2 things:
1. Read the URL into the Javascript so you know what page your on
OR
2. Use server side scripting to determine the page your on

When a user clicks on the menu item, all your doing is adding and removing a class. That won't persist to the next page because the user hasn't clicked on the nav on that page yet.
