Hidden Menu clicked, trigger Active States on Main Menu.How?

Post by kenwin916 » Sat Oct 25, 2014 1:23 am

Hi masters,

I need some help, I'm new to Joomla, I've created a website for my friend- http://www.maverikswarehouse.com
I'm stuck on the menus active states
I'm using FavouriteDark theme

I've created a Hidden Menu, these have category blogs in them, how do I make the Main Menu items in active state while one of the posts in hidden menu is clicked?

For example- I click on Gallery, then i click on one of the items, it will redirect to an article post, but the Gallery Menu is no longer active. How do I make it active?

Thanks

Kenwin

If the template allows for active menu, these are the steps:
The hidden menu should have the parent. ex.
Blog
- post 1
- post 2
- post 3

The Main Menu link for Blog should be a Menu Item Alias that links to your Hidden Menu link "Blog"

Hi
Thanks for replying, I'm still abit stuck, could you explain it to me by looking at my menu structure?

I've attached several pics, the one with more menus is the main menu
the one with 3 menus is hidden menu

Thanks
