Hi,

I have some code  that will activate a div if the user goes to the index page. The problem is that the div will stay active if the user clicks on another link. The corresponding div should be active with the link.

Here is the code

Thanks!

Wasn't all this sorted in another question I answered - seem to be going backwards

Replace your first jquery block with this

$(document).ready(function() { 
    $("div a").click(function() {
        $("#ForMembers,#Coverage,#GenInfo").removeClass("active")
        $(this).closest("div").addClass("active")
        var v = $(this).attr("id");
        $("#recipientId").val(v);
    });
});
