Change one menu item color


Hi there,
I’m trying to change only one item color (shop) to something different than the rest but I fail at it.
I know I can add a class name to the menu item on wordpress but then when I add css to that class name still does not show up.

am I missing something?

Formatting one individual menu item on main menu

Try adding !important to your CSS.


As Aaron said, if your applying it correctly just slap good ol’ !important and it normally works.


Hi @Liam_Geary1 and @Aaron_Monse ,

could you explain this a little bit more? I have the same question as @La_Clandestina, but I don’t know what i need to add to the CSS file to highlight one single menu item.
You can find my website via:

The word ’ Offerte’ needs a different color.

I hope you guys can help me!

Thank You
