I offered to help a fellow SharePointier out, and had a look at her top link bar – and more importantly, why the class .selected doesn’t work. This is more common thank you think – and is an issue I struggle with, with every site I make. And Tasha’s problem has me floored. So here it is.
Go to Tash’s site : http://www.hrssug.org/TashasSpot
You will see Home is selected. Click SharePoint, it will refresh and show you her SharePoint page, and the top nav link is selected.
Now click Food & Drink. It moves you to that page but the top nav link is not selected, but for some reason SharePoint IS selected. If you click Home and then back to Food & Drinks, SharePoint will be selected not Food & Drinks.
WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR:
I used Web Dev Tools to check the selected links – and then when I moved to Food and drink – I checked that class: no selected class.
I changed the order of the menu – so I moved Food & Drink to order 2, and presto! Food & Drink now shows the selected class when selected.
