I called post categories in my main menu using menu section and set them as child menu items now when I click that category menu items I need to make parent menu item active.I know doing this with jQuery for pages in this way

<?php if(is_page( 842 ) || is_page( 846 ) || is_page( 844 ) || is_page( 848 ) || is_page( 'current-tenders' )){?>
<script type="text/javascript">
 jQuery( window ).click(function() {

<?php }?>

in is_page( ID ) here ID is page id but how to do in this same way for categories or is there any other way to achieve this?


Unfortunately is_category() not worked for me but

if(in_category( 'articles' ))

`in_category()` worked 

Codex reference for in_category().
