    Hi, I am want to have a animated underline under each menu item. Like this example: http://tobiasahlin.com/blog/css-trick-animating-link-underlines/

    The code below is not targeting the text…any suggestions would be great? Also this would be a great feature for the menu addon.

    .main-navigation .main-nav ul li > a:hover, .main-navigation .main-nav ul li > a:focus, .main-navigation .main-nav ul li.sfHover > a {
      color: red;
      content: "";
      position: absolute;
      width: 100%;
      height: 2px;
      bottom: 0;
      left: 0;
      background-color: #000;
      visibility: hidden;
      -webkit-transform: scaleX(0);
      transform: scaleX(0);
      -webkit-transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out 0s;
      transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out 0s;
    }

    I used this effect in a site with this css:

    /* nav links effect */
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a::after {
        content: "";
        position: absolute;
        right: 0;
        left: 50%;
        bottom: 15px;
        -webkit-transform: translateX(-50%);
        transform: translateX(-50%);
    
        display: block;
        width: 0;
        height: 2px;
    
        background-color: currentColor;
        transition: 0.3s width ease;
    }
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item.current-menu-item > a::after,
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a:hover::after {
        width: 50%;
    }

    Hello,

    I”ve added the above CSS from Luiz to have each menu item underlined when hovered over. However, when my page loads, the page that I’m currently on is already underlined without me hovering. I’m a newbie and I may be making an obvious mistake that I don’t see. My site is not up so I can’t provide a link. Could you please point me in the right direction.

    Thank you,

    Darrell

    Try removing this line:

    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item.current-menu-item > a::after,

    HI TOM,

    In the CSS Luiz has provided, the underline covers 50% of the menu item.
    How can I change this to full item length (100%)?

    /* nav links effect */
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a::after {
        content: "";
        position: absolute;
        right: 0;
        left: 50%;
        bottom: 15px;
        -webkit-transform: translateX(-50%);
        transform: translateX(-50%);
    
        display: block;
        width: 0;
        height: 2px;
    
        background-color: currentColor;
        transition: 0.3s width ease;
    }
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item.current-menu-item > a::after,
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a:hover::after {
        width: 50%;
    }

    Thanks

    Try this:

    /* nav links effect */
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a::after {
        content: "";
        position: absolute;
        right: 0;
        left: 50%;
        bottom: 15px;
        -webkit-transform: translateX(-50%);
        transform: translateX(-50%);
    
        display: block;
        width: 0;
        height: 2px;
    
        background-color: currentColor;
        transition: 0.3s width ease;
    }
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item.current-menu-item > a::after,
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a:hover::after {
        width: 100%;
    }

    No, it’s not right. It moves to the left. has to do something with the -50% I guess.

    Got it. This worked very well for me:

    /* nav links effect */
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a::after {
        content: "";
        position: absolute;
        right: 50;
        left: 50%;
        bottom: 15px;
        -webkit-transform: translateX(-50%);
        transform: translateX(-50%);
    
        display: block;
        width: 0;
        height: 2px;
    
        background-color: currentColor;
        transition: 0.3s width ease;
    }
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item.current-menu-item > a::after,
    .main-navigation .menu > .menu-item > a:hover::after {
        width: 90%;
    }
