it worked for the most part and i’m eternally grateful since most of the functions i try do not; however, one of the navigation’s main styles is not working.
according to the codex:
This class is added to menu items that correspond to the currently rendered page.”
miraculously, it does style the currently rendered page menu item many different ways, such as increasing the size of the text, changing the background color, adding a border around the menu item, etc.
the problem is it won’t do what i have designed, which is simply make the text a different color.
i really don’t want to compromise the design of my site for what seems to be a glitch / bug.
