How to set a redirecting site active in navigation

Hey there,

i have the following structure.

A Homepage width the Content of the start page and a page called start who is redirecting to the parent. (Because I want the home page in the navigation) But how can i get the active status if i click the start page in my navigation?

Start (redirecting to Parent) → Needs the active

Thanks for your help!

basically make the home link from the navbar active?

I noticed that this doesnt work (out of the box) with the Neos.Demo:
Home - (a random) Neos Demo Site (

a possible solution:
use javascript for highligthing all links, then you can also cache the menu better ^^

Yes, i dont know why, but it is not working by default.

I wrote a solution with JS.
