Weird i know but as per the clients request i need to do the following:
if node being view is in a directory like this /panelist/panelist-name
i need to set the a menu link in the main menu to active and also a sidebar menu item too.
i tried doing in Rules but it didn't seem possible (still kind of new though!)
pseudo code would be if node being viewed contains 'panelist' or 'moderator' in URL then echo out some javacript or set some menu item class to 'active'
