    Make nav links stay active until another nav link is clicked

    Hi there,

    I'm developing a one page site and I have a fixed navigation at the top. The nav links scroll to different sections on the page.

    I'd like a nav link that is clicked to stay in its active state until another link on the page is clicked.

    Anyone know an easy way to make a link stay in its active state until another link is clicked?

    Thanks!
