changing background color for active page

I visited your forums and can't get this to work. I want the background color of the menubar to have a different color for the page that the visitor is presently on. Email me and I will give you the site URL...

In CSS Menu writer, click the define Button next to the theme selection.

Go to the Design Tab.

In the Background and Border section, Click the Current tab. In the Select in men list, select one of the highlighting options.

Thanks for getting back to me Jason. Any way of adding the CSS rules to a menu already created? I put a lot of time tweaking the CSS to get it to fit into my layout...

you can edit the menu using menu writer.

see the menu writer getting started guide for details on re entering the menu writer wizard:

Menu Writer

The pages this menu is on is already done as HTML. Except for maybe one form page... I don't see where I can edit the already created menu. Wouldn't it just be adding a new CSS rule for :active or something?

no it's not a simple mater of adding a css rule, you need to enable the option in the css menu writer wizard.

theres to it than just the rule, it's not something that can simply be added on after the fact, it doesn't work that way.


see the linked tutorial for details on re entering the interface to make changes after the menu is created.

OK. so this will only work with a database driven site, correct?
