Custom coding for navigation menu effect

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to add this effect where when you hover over the navigation menu, a different coloured bar appears for each one like on this site: https://museumofvancouver.ca/

 - which I can see is a customised SquareSpace site.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thank you, that works and I can see how to change the colours. Is there any way to have the line appear under the navigation items, instead of above them?
