How to make top-menu nav show active state?

Post by rlpines » Sun Jan 02, 2011 10:51 pm

Hello,

I have main-menu nav on left side of page that works great. I would like to have my top-menu nav highlight the active page. I have seen many post relating to this subject, but no clear answers. Does anyone know how to make top-menu nav and main-menu nav both show active state? http://designbyrandy.com

Thanks for any advice,

Try this, make the menu items in the top menu aliases linking to the existing menu items in the side (or vice versa) - that will redirect them to the other menu item thus highlighting both of them.

Hope that helps!

Thank you,

I created a home link as alias, and positioned it in top-menu.

The home link did not turn active. I think I could be missing something (in my mind).

Should I create a new top menu with none of the present navigation, and then create aliases in the main-menu and then place them in as new top-menu navigation?

Thanks for your reply,
