**The only custom CSS I have on this site is adding in custom fonts and adjusting padding on a specific block so I do not believe it's affecting by inability to do this**

I've seen many forum posts adjusting the underline under behaviour and colour but I am unable to make any of them work with my site. What I am trying to achieve is a thick orange block "underline" under my active navigation item. Whether it be the underline itself that becomes thicker or a background colour that is behind, I don't care I just want to make it work.

This is what I want my header to look like when on an active page:

Instead I am unable to manipulate this header:

Is there a way to do this when you don't have an active header?  

I'm trying to do this with a Header called About (main navigation), and a non-linked paged, as seen in the attachment. I'm trying to manually underline About, even tho its not the "active header"
