I would like to create a hover underline animation (going left to right) in my navigation bar and I am not sure how. This should only apply to main headings, and nothing in the dropdown menus. Any help with custom CSS would be greatly appreciated!


.header-nav-item > a:after, .header-nav-folder-item > a:after {
  width: 0px;
  height: 1px;
  background: #fff;
  display: block;
  transition: width .2s ease;

.header-nav-item > a, .header-nav-folder-item:hover {
  background: none !important;

.header-nav-item--active > a:after, .header-nav-item:hover > a:after, .header-nav-folder-item:hover > a:after {
  width: 100%;

.header-nav-folder-item:hover > a {
  color: #fff !important;
