Dreamweaver/Color on Sidebar link


how do i make the 'hover' background color remain in an active sidebar link.  the end result... i want the menu items to be the different color after clicked so the user knows which menu/submenu they are in.

Hi Kirk,

Can you send the snippet of code for the sidebar and the css tags if you are using css?  Also, did you want the hover state to match the visited state or the unvisited state? Feel free to send a url link if this is published somewhere.
