I'd like to change the class in the main menu from 'active' to say 'current'. How can this be accomplished?

Assuming you are using Drupal 7.

You can overide theme_links in your own theme.

find the line:

$class[] = 'active';

make it

$class[] = 'current';

check API:


by the way, I would suggest you not to change 'active', instead you can just add additional class for it. As many contributed modules use the default 'active' class. Such as SuperFish, Menu Block
