Multiple current page highlights with virtual pages.  en

Author: Esahc ..

A minor annoyance, when a website has both virtual pages (multiple sections of a page defined by anchors) and real pages, navigating from a real page to a virtual page highlights both the parent page and the virtual page as the current page on both the page and sticky menu. This is not an issue when navigating to various anchors on the same page (eg. a true single page website).

Since it is easier to do than explain, the test project is attached.

I have noticed the same behavior, and so I went on internet to see how other with 1 page sites solve this.

Some do this the same way and some not. then I went on to see what I liked best myself.

So I thought it thru and strictly x5 is correct you are on the page where the info is so it should be selected as your are on the page.

I like it because it is correct and I would like it more to have it this way then you select only one of the pages.

It is a page selector, not an anchor selector. So it's just the way you look at it.

Best Regards,

Andre, this time I think we will agree to disagree :-)

Up until this recent improvement in V14, a single page website would always show every menu item as the current page, in V14 with a single page only the current virtual page is highlighted on the menu. This is great!

My problem above is (I suspect) a simple oversight (a situation they did not foresee) by the developers.

No I don't think so, but I would not mind if we will agree to disagree, everyone his own way....

But to be honest i did not test this in v14, so now I toke a project with 1 page and multiple links in the menu for that page.

And it is not  as consitance as in v13, on the v14 I got once 2 current website icons in the menu, but after that it  seems to display only the last selected menu link.

I don't mind eather one, just my thought is to display both is more correct, but it could  also be more confusion for visitors.

So if it's the other way around now it's ok as well. (I am not that difficult on these issues) but they should always be the same, somehow at first got to menu 2 links selected and later not, that's not good....

This only happens when you go from one page to the anchor of another page immediately.

Hello Esahc ..,

The behaviour changed but it is correct to show also the levels which points to to an anchor to the current page marked as current page since it the current page.

Many thanks!

But Claudio, if you go from Page 1 to Level 1, both home page and Level 1 light up. If you then click on Level 1,home page is no longer lit up.

If you are on home page, level 1 or Level 2, then it you go to Home Page, Level 1 or Level 2, ONLY the page you go to is lit up.

This is inconsistent.

By your logic, if I go to level 1 or Level 2 Home Page should always be lit up, and this is not the case. With a single page website you are saying that no matter which "virtual page" we choose, the home page should always be highlighted, thankfully it is not.
