"active" class indicator with certain URL variable strings?

"active" class indicator with certain URL variable strings?

I have a page with some short cut buttons enabled by the WA search features. The href is something like "index.php?sqft=1500&sqft_2=2500&Search=Find". I'd like to have those buttons add class styles to indicate which is active. I've done lots of poking around in searches online to find code that works, but I haven't hit on the right one.

I'm looking for two if statements:
- If the URL string contains "sqft=1500", echo "active"
- If the URL string does not contain a variable, echo "active" (for the "All" button)

Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

<?php echo((isset($_GET["active"]) && $_GET["active"] == "1500")?"active":""); ?>

<?php echo((!isset($_GET["active"]))?"active":""); ?>

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...


Minor correction for anyone else following this thread but in my example it would have been:

<?php echo((isset($_GET["sqft"]) && $_GET["active"] == "1500")?"active":""); ?>
<?php echo((!isset($_GET["sqft"]))?"active":""); ?>

But it works great! Thanks Ray!
