    I want to add class for the current page. If someone click over the menu and it opens page then the menu should changes the background-color. Solution would be appreciated.

    Many themes already have a unique page-id class in the body tag. Look there and see. Then you can use that class in the CSS selector. If you post a link to your site, someone can likely offer more specific help.

    Use any inspect tool in your browser like firebug for firefox. Then go the page and choose inspect element after right clicking over the menu item. You'll see the classes for that element in the html console. Hope it helps. Please reply if it helps or if you need more info on this

    Ok so i don't know what kind of menu's are you using. But i think you need to add css for the "active" class. try adding css background color for class 'current-menu-item' and 'current_page_item'. Mostly these classes are used for what you are trying to do.

    so add .current-menu-item{ background-color: (colorname); } to your css file.

    I don't know which browser are you using. so try looking for inspect element option in chrome browser. just right click and it will appear in the options.

    .current-menu-item{ background-color: (colorname); }

    Are there other css commands for the navigation menus as well?
