  4. In the Link CSS Style field, enter a CSS class name

    IMPORTANT: Use only alpha numerical characters, hyphens, and underscores, but no spaces.
  5. Click Save & Close to save your changes.

    Joomla adds the custom class to the menu link.

  6. Now you can use a CSS class to create custom formatting for the link you modified. For example, create a CSS class in your css stylesheet; make sure to use the exact same class name you used in the link:
    a.homestyle {color:#fff;font-size:11px;background:#666}
