Making top menu bar more dynamic - highlighting when hovering, underline when clicked

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.mghstudentwellness.org

We are trying to make the top menu bar of our website a bit more dynamic, by having different options highlight when you hover over them, and the top level category (e.g., Resources) remain underlined when anything within that menu is clicked, to help with navigation/not losing one's place. Currently this happens only for the "What we do" item.

I have very basic Square Space editing skills.

Can anyone help? Thank you!

I saw you use jQuery and some other js code snippet to replace the folder url, kindly replace all of them with this 

    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.4.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
	var folder_link = [
        {
            href: "/what-we-do",
            target: "/our-services-1"
        },
        {
            href: "/who-we-are",
            target: "/about-us"
        },
        {
            href: "/resources-2",
            target: "/resources"
        }
    ]
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $(document).on('click', '.header-nav-folder-title', function(e) {
            var folder_href = $(this).attr("href");
            var folder_item = folder_link.filter(function(f) { return f.href == folder_href; });

            if ( folder_item[0] ) {
                window.location = folder_item[0].target;
            }
            e.preventDefault();
            return false;
        });

        var current_path = window.location.pathname;
        var matched_folder_item = folder_link.filter(function(f) { 
            return current_path == f.target;
        });

        if ( matched_folder_item[0] ) {
            $('.header-nav-folder-title[href="'+matched_folder_item[0].href+'"]').closest("div").addClass("header-nav-item--active");
        }
    });
</script>
