How to Highlight BrandNav Menu Item

Recommended Posts

I want to highlight the DONATE menu item in my navigation (www.stilleasierthanchemo.com) by default without the user having to hover over the link. I've attached an example of what I'd like it to look like (run4massey.org). How do I change the background color of the DONATE link without changing the background color of the entire BrandNav menu list?

Hi,

 

You will want to use Custom CSS, something like this:

 

#menu-item-31 {
background-color: #FBC000;
}
 
In the CSS above, I have used Google Chromes dev tools to inspect the donates menu item which has a unique ID, from that I can add individual styling. You will probably want to also change the hover state and link color. For that, you will need to add more custom CSS by targeting the menu again and using the a tag in your custom CSS to style the link color and also use the :hover pseudo class for the hover state.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Thanks!

 

The CSS you provided worked perfectly. I'm using the Chrom dev tool but am still having trouble changing the link color from #36bcab to #fff. Also, I don't know how to remove the hover effect.

 

(Sorry, total newbie here...)

Try this:

 

#menu-item-31 a { color: #FFFFFF; }
#menu-item-31:hover { background-color: #FBC000; }
 
If you're a complete newbie, I would highly recommend Code School, sign up its free and do the dev tools course/interactive tutorial its awesome and will have a code ninja in no time. You should probably sign up for the premium service and do the Web design courses, it will be beneficial.

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      How to make the Impulse menu sticky?
      Here is a site that seems like it is doing just that: http://www.manhattanperiodontist.com/
      Here is the site I am working on: http://boeriu.digitalvector.com/ 
      I have no problem showing the menu at the bottom, but when scrolling up it does not stick.  I tried to add Nav Pro menu but when I do that, it just shows on top and no matter what I try is not working as I want it to.
      Any suggestions?

      1) Toggle menu on mobile devices does not work properly, combination Chrome 56.0.2924.87 with Android 6.0.1

      2) Mobile / Default Menu > Set the primary/default navigation for your site. This will be used in the pop out mobile menu and as the default in navigation sections. Does not work.

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.
