I'm developing a theme for a news portal and i've run into the following problem.
When a single post is opened the menu item that is marked as current needs to be a static page.
What i mean is the following:
Lets say i have 3 pages in the menu:
Home | Local News | World News
Now although these pages may look like categories they wont be. I need them to be static pages as they may have defferent designs that have to be realized with shortcodes.
What i need is a way to make the correct menu item marked as current when a post, lets say from Local News, is opened.
Is there a way to accomplish that?
I know how to use categories to that effect but the project requires me to use static pages instead.
