Why, if I write - .nav li.current-menu-item a {}, then all items in the submenu of the active page will be highlighted, how can I make sure that only the really active item is highlighted? If I write - 'li', then everything works fine - .nav li.current-menu-item {}, but I need it with the - "a" .

My code variant - "a" does not work correctly -

.nav  li.current-menu-item a {
    color: #ff7676;;
}

a variant

My code variant "li" works fine -

.nav  li.current-menu-item {
    background-color: rgb(175, 173, 32);
}

variant li

My menu code

<?php

  • Try this: .nav li.current-menu-item > a Aug 15, 2021 at 2:39

This is purely a CSS question, and has nothing to do with WordPress, but the answer is simple enough. You need to use the child combinator:

.nav li.current-menu-item > a {}
