View Full Version : AnyLink Vertical Menu font color problem

11-02-2005, 09:18 PM
I got the AnyLink Vertical Menu script working great. It's exactly what I was looking for. I really like that it was easy to configure just by copy-pasting the script.

It's working perfectly except for an anomaly with my XP Pro's IE browser. It displays correctly with Firefox.

In the top-most right-hand side box titled "Topics" (see Dear Gabby's New Letters (http://www.comcom121.org/gabby/newlets/index.htm) ) when I mouseover the topic "Infidelity" the first subtopic, "Signs of unfaithfulness," the font color is black whereas the others are what I want, a custom blue. This black font color appears with a few of the other subtopics however most are displayed correctly.

The theme is store-bought and comes with it's own CSS page. My guess is that there's a conflict, but why it appears with just one line of text is confusing.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Actually, it is no different in FF. That black color will be the color of all visited links on your page as per:


color : #000000;

text-decoration : none;

font-weight: normal;


from your:


external stylesheet. To keep that rule for links on the page in general and change it for the ones in the menu, add this to the onpage stylesheet for the menu (additions red):

#dropmenudiv a{
width: 100%;
display: block;
text-indent: 3px;
border-bottom: 1px solid black;
padding: 1px 0;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;

#dropmenudiv a:visited{ /*visited text color*/
color: #404E80;

#dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
background-color: #C7CDE5;

Aaah, I see. I was totally unware that it had changed colors because I had visited it during a test.

Mucho thankso John..
