Making the sidebar category tree highlight the active category (Elevate)

In order for the sidebar sub-category or the active category to be highlighted and expanded at that postion you need to edit the category URL structure. 

This is the only way we could get this feature to function, the way it works is it looks at the URL for example /women/dresses/ and uses the forward slashes as a way to distinguish which category in the sidebar expand and highlight.

To set this up, please visit "Store Setup > Store Settings" then click on the "URL Structure" tab and scroll down to the "Category URL Settings" and change the to custom and set it to /%parent%/%categoryname%/
