Becoming Adept!

My problem begins with me not knowing how do anything, seeing as this is the first time i have ever tried anything like this.

i got a black background, and the clicked link is like a dark greyish color, so its impossible to read once clicked, just wondering if anyone could give me any hints on how to change that sort of thing

Here's what I have in my CSS for the links. Mottie can correct me if something is wrong. LOL

A:active
{
    COLOR: #fffccc;
        text-decoration: bold;
}
A:link
{
    COLOR: #fffccc;
    text-decoration: bold;
        text-decoration: underline;
    font-weight:300;
}
A:hover
{
    COLOR: #fff999;
        text-decoration: bold;
        text-decoration: underline;
}
A:visited
{
    COLOR: #fffccc;
        text-decoration: bold;
        text-decoration: underline;

***You can change anything in red.***

*NOTE:* You can also change the text-decoration to anything you like; Bold, Underline, Italic. I'm not sure about changing it's font size/color though. That would be a Mottie question.

If you don't use css go to control panel > styles and colors > page styles > text > then choose your color next to  "All Visited Hyperlinks Color"

The order for the link pseudo-classes is supposed to be:

  1. Link
  2. Visited
  3. Hover
  4. Active

or an easy way to remember it is "LoVe/HAte".


If you use Focus (works with Firefox, not IE), it goes betwen the LoVe and the HAte:

  1. Link
  2. Visited
  3. Focus
  4. Hover
  5. Active

An easy phrase to remember is "Lord Vader Froze Han's Ass"

The reason order is important is that the last one listed wins if a link falls into more than one category.
