Highlighting Settings

This option is to highlight the menu items which link to current page you are browsing.

When you browse web site through DHTML menu system, this Highlight function easily guides you which link you are visiting now.

How it works?

When you visit a page, the menu will analyze the current page's URL and all the link URLs of menu items. After the analysis, the menu item(s) will be shown as the highlighted (visited mode) if same link in menu item(s) is found.

Following link types are supported by highlight function:

  • Absolute web path like
  • Root relative path like /product/dhtmlmenu/index.htm
    (Note: This link path can not work locally. Please publish your pages to web server.)
