Joomla home page menu item doesn’t get the "active" class

By | October 24, 2017

I have googled a lot about my problem and I didn't find a solution. I'm creating a website using Joomla that supports English and Dutch languages. I followed online tutorials and I created 2 menus (separate from my main menu) that contain only the Home menu item which is set to default page for the language ( 1 for Dutch and 1 for English). The problem is when I'm at my homepage ( index.php/en or index.php/nl) the Home menu item doesnt get the "active" class so it is not highlighted. I could use JS to invent a hacky way to highlight it but I am sure that I am doing something wrong and there should be a better way to fix my problem. How should I set up my menus so it works as intended?
