    I’m working on this site:

    http://dpa-grp.com/dpagrp2013/projects/

    and trying to keep the parent page “Projects” highlighted in the main nav while on the individual posts in that category.

    The “current_page_parent” works for sub-pages (as on the Services page) but apparently not with posts.

    Anyone know how to do this?

    There are a couple of ways…the simplest way is to give each page (or ID) a separate class and each link an individual class too.

    Then you could do something like

    .page-1 .home {
    styling;
    }

    .page-2 .about {
    styling;
    }

    otherwise…javascript.

    Do you have a link?

    Link is all the way at the beginning of the thread @Paulie_D ;)

    Since WordPress already added classes to the body, you can use those to style the Project menu item. Change line 105 in your CSS:

    .topmenu li a:hover, .topmenu li.current_page_item a, .topmenu li.current_page_parent a {

    To this:

    .topmenu li a:hover, .topmenu li.current_page_item a, .topmenu li.current_page_parent a,
    body.postid-201 .topmenu li a,
    body.postid-194 .topmenu li a,
    body.postid-180 .topmenu li a,
    body.postid-174 .topmenu li a,
    body.postid-165 .topmenu li a,
    body.postid-119 .topmenu li a {

    You could also make a separate page template for the individual project pages, and put a specific class in there somewhere, but what I wrote here above is probably the quickest solution for now.

    You’re right, I missed that. This should be the proper code:

    .topmenu li a:hover, .topmenu li.current_page_item a, .topmenu li.current_page_parent a,
    body.postid-201 .topmenu li.page-item-21 a,
    body.postid-194 .topmenu li.page-item-21 a,
    body.postid-180 .topmenu li.page-item-21 a,
    body.postid-174 .topmenu li.page-item-21 a,
    body.postid-165 .topmenu li.page-item-21 a,
    body.postid-119 .topmenu li.page-item-21 a {
