Topic: sidenav-link something sets last item to active

losdude free asked 1 year ago


Expected behavior

No menu item should show active if I haven't specified the active class on it (sidenav-link class item)

Actual behavior

The last item in the

  • list of sidenav-item ('s) gets selected as active every time, no matter what. Even if I specify another
  • to be active, it switches to the last one.

    Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) You can see this happen here: https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/standard/mdbootstrap/2515385?view=side Notice the last item (bottom left, when the menu is showing) is always selected (SALES menu item).

    The case is that href attr is empty. Try to change sidenav code for this, or just set each href to href="#"

    <nav id="sidenav-1" class="sidenav" data-mdb-hidden="false" data-mdb-accordion="true">
        <a class="ripple d-flex justify-content-center py-4" href="#!" data-mdb-ripple-color="primary">
          <img id="MDB-logo" src="https://mdbootstrap.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/logo-mdb-jquery-small.png"
            alt="MDB Logo" draggable="false" />
        </a>
    
        <ul class="sidenav-menu">
          <li class="sidenav-item">
            <a class="sidenav-link" href="#">
              <i class="fas fa-chart-area fa-fw me-3"></i
              ><span>Webiste traffic</span></a
