Hi, I am hoping someone can help me with some link coloring.

In the top of the CSS file there is this setting:

{color#999999; text-decoration: none; font-weight: bold; background-color: transparent;}
a:hover {color#6699ff;}


I would like to color the A links to black in the left and right blocks.

Here is what the leftcolmn looks like now:

td#leftcolumn {width: 160px; border-right: 1px solid #cccccc; font-size:8px;}
td#leftcolumn th {background-color: #000000; color: #FFFFFF; vertical-align: middle;}
td#leftcolumn div.blockTitle {font-size:x-small; padding: 0px; background-color: #000000; color: #ffffff; font-weight: bold;}
td#leftcolumn div.blockContent {padding: 3px; line-height: 120%; line-height: 120%;}


How can i add some CSS to make all the A links inside blockContent to be #000000 instead of the gloabl default which is #999999 ??


Please help :)

Cheers,

Re:CSS colors for left and right blocks

you can use a CSS descendant selector
td#leftcolumn div.blockContent a{color:#000}


This says:

select any <a> tag that is inside a <div> with a class of "blockContent" that is inside a <td> with an id of "leftColumn" and set its text color to #000

Well, that means editing alot of blocks templates...

I was hoping there was a global way to set that in the style.css file


is it not possible to set A links different just for the left and right blocks?

Thx,

Re:CSS colors for left and right blocks

did you try that css? cause it will change the color for every a link in every block in the left sidebar. To do the right, repeat this line changing td#leftcolumn to td#rightcolumn

Re:CSS colors for left and right blocks

could the stylesheet be cached? Can you send me a link and I'll take a look at it using DOM inspector?

Sure!

I sent the link in PM

I know its not cached, since i can make other changes, and they appear immediately.

Re:CSS colors for left and right blocks

I sent you a pm with a modified style rule that should work.

The theme you were using did not have a <td> with an id of leftcolumn (or rightcolumn) and it used <span> instead of <div> for its blockContent so this modified rule should work for you:
span.blockContent a{color:#000}

I did at least get it installed!

For new people trying to figure this out:
It took me about 2 days to realize that the changes made in the CSS file were not displaying in Netscape because it was for a different browser (M$IE). The NN.css is for Mozilla, MAC.css for Mac, and plain old style.css for M$IE. So, when you are making changes that seem fruitless, make sure you are using the right browser before banging your head too hard.
