    Is there a way to customize the link on an active page without having to write a lot of markup?

    On the site, I want the links to appear green, hover orange, and when “home” page is showing, I want that home link to be purple but all of the other links to be green still.

    Is there an a:current tag out there?

    I could write < span >home< /span> gallery | gallery |… and redefine with purple link characteristics and then just change the span on every page. That is a lot of extra markup and checking. I’m seeking a shortcut.


    it’s not a:current,it’s a:active.

    a:link /* unvisited links */
    a:visited /* visited links */
    a:hover /* user hovers */
    a:active /* active links */


    this is basic css!


    @wolfcry911 thanks for the help on that. I don’t really know PHP so a CSS based solution is what I have to use.
