Create menu with active class on deeplinking

With help from my friend Mikkel W. Fredriksen, I have created my own menu that has an "Active Class", on the active menu list item.

I have a menu that looks like this in HTML5:

        <li><a href="#page-1">Page 1</a></li>
        <li><a href="#page-2">Page 2</a></li>
        <li><a href="#page-3">Page 3</a></li>
        <li><a href="#page-4">Page 4</a></li>
        <li><a href="#page-5">Page 5</a></li>
        <li><a href="#page-6">Page 6</a></li>

I then add the deeplinking functionality to the Royal Slider, with a 'page-' prefix:

deeplinking: {
    enabled: true,
    change: true,
    prefix: 'page-'

Within the "jQuery(document).ready(function($) {", I include this little script:

var slider = $('#content-slider').data('royalSlider'),
    controls = $('nav ul li'),
    setActiveMenuItem = function(){

    slider.ev.on('rsBeforeAnimStart', setActiveMenuItem);

Good luck :-)

    Thank you very much for sharing, hope it'll be useful for someone. I optimized your JS part a little, if you dont mind.
