Current Class on Dropdown

Makes the dropdown element (usually inside navigations) indicate when a current state is active on one of the pages within.

What this code does is to check if there's a child element under the dropdown with current state ('.w--current' class added by webflow), and apply the same class to the parent dropdown element.

We start by adding this short code to the Project's custom code section, so this will work globally on any page in the project.. We can also add this manually to every page we have a sub level dropdown menu.

<script>

 $('.w-dropdown').each(function() {

   var hasActiveLink = $(this).find('.w--current').length > 0;

   $(this).find('.w-dropdown-toggle').addBack().toggleClass('w--current', hasActiveLink);

 });

</script>

Based on Samuel Liew code from here.

Try avoiding using "Transition: All". It is heavy on the browser's engine.
