Change Style of Active Menu Item

This works best if your theme uses body_class() in the body tag.  In this case, we are changing the active menu item color to red.

.menu .current_page_item, .menu .current_page_parent { 
    color: #ab0804

Include in your CSS file.

Dave Winter focuses in WordPress UI Design and WordPress Plugin Development (some have labelled him a fanatic) but has hands in many other projects, including photography and music. He's never far from a computer... or an iPad (for testing purposes, of course). If you've been to a WordCamp in Southern California, he probably already knows who you are (or maybe not - he's terrible with names). Dave currently teaches courses at California State University, Long Beach alongside his small business at (and his students think he's pretty boss).
