October 21st, 2012AWM: Highlight text on selected menu item
Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.
Initial Email From: John
Initial Email Subject: Highlight text only of selected menu item
Support Case Month: April 2012
Many thanks for your help earlier. Here's another, much simpler, question. I'd like to mimic the effect used on the main menu of www.made.com, where the text of the selected items appears highlighted (ie not the whole item).
How can that be done in AWM?

This is a bit tricky, as it is not natively supported by AllWebMenus, however it is not that hard to achieve.
What you need to do, is to change your item to “HTML – Formatting Mode”, and change the “click” state (which is used for the highlighting) to have a <span> with a specific background like this:
In this example, the “text” value in the first two states (normal, mouseover) is:
While the last state (click) is:
<span style="background-color: yellow;">Chairs</span>
Let me know if you need more specific help with something.
