    I have created some pages and subpages. But when I am active at a page, the link in the main navigation remains black. I would like to have it in an active link color.

    It’s the same as in the demo theme, where the active pages also have no active link color:

    How can I do this?



    nobody an idea?


    Really nobody an idea??

    I would like to have the active link color for the main page, when being active at a subpage of it.


    In the main navigation no link is in the active link color (coloured). In this example the main navigation link “Templates” – as the parent site of this subpage – should have the active link color.



    sorry for the delay. I lost the link to your site again, could you link me?

    All I can tell is that in the page you link it’s a menu widget – the active color can be defined in your theme css – in the preview it’s minimal-skin.css on this line:

    .widget_nav_menu .current-menu-item > a, .widget_nav_menu .current_page_item > a


    Hi Chris,

    my site is still in maintenance mode, so I provide a screenshot with some descriptions in it.

    Concerning these active link colors my site behaves exactly as your demo site does (

    there is also only “Home” highlighted with the active link color, when you are at the “Home” page, as well as the other 5 main navigation items behaves.

    But as soon as you are on a subpage of these main menu items, its main menu item (as a parent) is no longer highlighted.

    Here a screenshot of my site with some descriptions:

    I’ve changed the color in the code, that you had mentioned above, but this has no effect at all::

    .widget_nav_menu .current-menu-item>a, .widget_nav_menu .current_page_item>a{<br />



    I think this can help you.


    Thanks, Chris, this worked; but I added there an additional question concerning the active link color to the submenu, if you could please take a look there:



    Answered the question.
