Tab menu active link on dynamic pages.

I have an industrial products website and each product is organized by lubrication type (grease, oil, etc.)

I’ve created product search results/detail pages using DataAssist.

The product detail page has a tab menu (the tab menu is on a dwt template/WA theme) that features additional products based on their lubrication type. When you click on a lubrication type (greases, oils, etc.) appropriate products are shown.

When a product that has a specific lube type is detailed, the tab menu link that matches its 'lube type' needs to be active. This also applies to the lube type page (both use the same template).

Also, the same template is applied to other pages as well. Not sure if this presents a problem.

See PM to view pages.

Doing that really depends on the tab panel you are using. You would have to look at the documentation for that tab panel to see how to set the active tab and then use the logic you describe to get it selected.

This is something I could help with in a premier support ticket.

Can't get the lube links to work correctly. I've added the code you provided, and updated it to work with the recordset, but nothing has changed. I've moved the snippet around, but no difference.

Not sure if it makes a difference, but the template code is mixed inside other php code on the product type page.

File attached.

I made another small change to the template page to make sure the recordset names were unique.

I had to move the order of the code on the page. It had to be:

1) Recordset
2) Snippet that refers to the Recordset
3) Theme code
