In need of one last thing..

  • Apr. 3rd, 2008 at 11:42 AM
Hello everyone! I'm new here, but thank you all so muh for your helpful advice. I have set my entire page up on my own, and everything has worked, except one little thing: My visited links, including the header ("paperback writer") is stuck at that color blue, and userinfo/friends/entries links are stuck at dark tan, and are nearly unreadable. How do I change this? I am currently on Expressive Headphones.

I used this code:

:link,
a:visited,
a:hover {
color : #000;
}


.current a:link,
.current a:visited,
.current a:hover {
color : #000;
}


.datetime,
.asset-content {
color : #000;
}

.asset-meta-comments a:link,
.asset-meta-comments a:visited,
.asset-meta-comments a:hover {
color : #000;
}

.asset-meta-list .item {
border-color: #000;
}

#comments,
.comments-header,
.comment {
color : #000;
}


.widget-list,
.widget-header,
.widget-content {
color : #000;
}
"


and it changed MOST things to black, except visited links including my header. What am I missing here.

Thank you very much!

Edit: Whoops. visited links. I honestly have no idea, I popped it into firebug and it looks like the visited link code should be cancelled out. Weird.

[s]All the nesting can be a pain in the butt! I went through and modified my links recently too, so here's my suggestion.

#header-name a {color: #000; }[/s]

Though now that I'm looking, according to firebug you still have links set to be blue, including #header-name a.

this is the code above the link stuff in mine.

#header, #header-content {
background-image: none;
}

#header-inner {
background-image: url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v626/takemewithyou/3321186_67.jpg);
}


body {
background-color: #cccc99;
background-repeat: repeat-x ;
background-attachment: fixed ;
}
:link,
a:visited,
a:hover {
color : #000;
}

anything wrong there?

Well, you could try, instead of :link, doing just an a there as per the suggestion below. like,

a{color: #000;}

Your code isn't wrong, but there's SO much nesting in this style that it's hard to figure out what you have to do to get to all the links. If this doesn't work I can go through and find them for you, I think.

it hasn't yet, so now i'm just trying different layouts in Expressive to find a good fit.

You could change most of the links to black by replacing most of your coding with:
a { color: #000;}

They might need to slap a !important on there too, though, because sometimes that just doesn't do what you want.
