What i wish to do is :

i want to change the image to a colored version of the image when it onclick, ie, some other image. Now, I know i can use jquery/JS to accomplish it. But i dont want a huge amount of JS code to accomplish something so simple. Can it be done using something simpler? Like .current in CSS

I cannot seem to think of it.

CSS :

### Solution :

Here is the basic idea. It can be improved immensly by using CSS sprites. Using sprites will also iliminate the delay in loding the on click image. For an introduction to CSS Sprites see: https://css-tricks.com/css-sprites/

I haven't used sprites here as they are hard to emulate usind palceholdit, which I have used for the image.

On to the code. I will outline what it does and key features after.

/*Hide the Radio Button*/
display: none
}

/*Set a box for the label, this is what is clicked on*/
display: block;
width: 150px;
height: 100px;
}

/*Set Images...this would work better with sprites*/
background-image: url("http://placehold.it/150x100/FF0000/FFFFFF/?text=Image1");
}
background-image: url("http://placehold.it/150x100/?text=Image1");
}
background-image: url("http://placehold.it/150x100/00FF00/FFFFFF/?text=Image2");
}
background-image: url("http://placehold.it/150x100/?text=Image2");
}
<div class="games-platform-item pt-item">
<li class="tab1 current">
<label class="topimgG1" for="rdoImg1"></label>
<span>编辑精选</span>
</li>
<li class="tab2 current">
<label class="topimgG2" for="rdoImg2"></label>
<span>编辑精选</span>
</li>
</ul>
</div>

Basically what is going on here is the hidden radio button is maintaining the state of the image. From there we use the checked CSS selector in conjuntion with the adjacent sibling selector + to chanage the background image of the label. Important Note the check box must come immediately before the label. You could use the general sibling selector, but the check box must still come before the label.

You could also replace radio with checkbox if the choices aren't mutually exclusive.

You could also achive a similar result using links to an id on the page, and utilize the :target selector. But this would introduce a page jump.
