If current page url

My code to add a class based on the current page is not working. Can you help me work out why?

 $(document).ready(function() {


    var url = window.location.pathname, 
        urlRegExp = new RegExp(url.replace(/\/$/,'') + "$"); // create regexp to match current url pathname and remove trailing slash if present as it could collide with the link in navigation in case trailing slash wasn't present there
        // now grab every link from the navigation

		$('.sub_nav a').each(function(){
            // and test its normalized href against the url pathname regexp


Open in new window
