  • Seems to be an issue (oversight rather) in v3 with custom navigation. If you set up a custom menu, and have your links in the format ‘/page-slug’ instead of ‘’, the class assignment of ‘current-menu-item’ never gets assigned.

    This is a real pain in the neck, especially when you use a domain such as ‘’ for any development work. It means you have to go back into your custom menu and change all the links again.

    Anyone come up with a fix for this that doesn’t involve hacking the core?
