Drupal Menus

I'm building a site using Drupal.  I have a main navigation and a custom navigation.  My client wants the Custom navigation menu choice that is active to be another color.  Is there a Drupal Plugin or do I need to write a simple php script?  If it is a php script, can you give me an example of where to start?

Thank you in advance!

To change a color of a menu you will need to do some CSS editing.

Find your CSS file for your theme and add

#customnavigationtitle a:active {
background color: #FFFFFF

Where FFFFFF is the new hexadecimal color code.

Let me know if you need further clarification.


bill30 thank you for your answer.  I did not explain it far enough though.  There are parent pages and sub-pages.  When a user is on a sub-page they want the Parent page to be active.  

How is that accomplished?

You could add some jquery to the site with some basic if/then statements.  If HTML page = ( page 1 or page 2) then CSS menuitem#1 = class active.

That is not proper coding whatsoever. but you get the idea.
