<place module="place">


This is Custom module menu tab. I click on it, it doesn't get selected. I tried to add active CSS class to it using liParmas but it doesn't add the class. If anyone know any simple trick to make it selected, please share.

You need to make your menu active via your custom controller. Suppose the action that took place be indexAction, then it should looks like

public function indexAction()

As you can see _setActiveMenu will do this job for you.
