Bright blue font in links

I cannot seem to be able to control the color of links in a theme, could somebody please advise?

I'm using a responsive theme, with a style sheet created with Themeroller 1.3.2. There is no bright blue in the style as far as I can see. However, the Nethelp output has all links in bright blue. Could somebody tell me where this color comes from?

Also, if I import one of the predefined styles, such as Light into Themeroller, make some changes, download it and create a new style based on it, the link font becomes bright blue.

You need to set the a:link property.

Hi Steve,

Thank you. I what file should it be set?

I've searched the theme and the style sheet files for a:link, but I cannot find it.

EOM, You're probably seeing a default value from Flare's default styles or from the browser user agent stylesheet. Just create the entry in your project CSS:

Code: Select all
a:link{color:red}


Obviously change red to your desired colour/hex/rgb value.

Hi,
from the beginning of this thread I assume that it belongs to DocToHelp:
So, here is my reply for DocToHelp:
1. You may need to create your own Responsive theme
2. Then you can add the appropriate definition in its user.css file (see Steves Reply).
Actually, I never tried to change link style with ThemeRoller.

Thank you all. Specifying a:link in user.css fixed this issue.
