Alright, so I'm attempting to just add a CSS class to a selected category link.

I'm trying to get more familiar with the category tree (category_tree.php) and the only thing I've found that controls the selected output is the following:

$OSCOM_CategoryTree->setCategoryPath($cPath, '<strong>', '</strong>');

This, of course, just bolds the current selected category.

However, I'm just looking to do something similar to this (see the "CUSTOM_CSS_CLASS"):

<a class="list-group-item list-group-item-action CUSTOM_CSS_CLASS" href="http://mywebsite.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=3"><strong>Electronics</strong></a>

Is there a way to achieve this with any of the available functions within category tree?

Thanks @JcMagpie

I was finally able to look at your post and I'm not sure if that's exactly what I'm looking to do. 

I pretty much want to add a class to the current selected category and I thought it could be done utilizing one of the functions from the category_tree.php

I'm going to play around with some things and see what I can come up with, thanks again!

If you just want to style the text between strong tags then you should be able to replace them with

<span class="custom_class"></span>

then add to css

.custom_class { color:red }

or use bootstrap classes

<span class="text-danger"></span>
