Hi all,

I'm having some trouble styling a specific element in the navigation.

This is generated:

<li><a href="/subscribe/" title="Go to the Subscribe page" class="link">Subscribe to newsletter</a></li>

How am i able to add more to the class, so i can style it with the CSS files?

Thanks for any help!

you could use something like the following: it adds an extra class if the current link has the URL of "subscribe".

<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="link <% if URLSegment = subscribe %>subscribe-link<% end_if %>">$MenuTitle</a></li>
