links in posts get blacked (dark-blued?) out when hovered?

Postby Doktor Jones » Mon Jun 22, 2009 2:33 pm

Am I the only person who sees links within posts get obscured when they're hovered over? Other links (such as the post title, usernames, even sig links) don't get obscured this way. It seems to have to do with conflicting styles; the other links turn a dark bluish color when moused over... the in-post links do too, but also wind up with a background-color attribute that's the same blue. Here's a nifty animated gif showing what happens (pay attention to the "Re: Tool ID" text, and the link near the bottom):

EDIT: for reference, it appears the problem color is #002b3d and the offending class is "postlink".

EDIT2: Snipped some now-irrelevant stuff from my first edit. 'Tis a bug in the CSS. I continued perusing down below
Code: Select all
/*     
--------------------------------------------------------------
Colours and backgrounds for links.css
-------------------------------------------------------------- */

and almost immediately found
Code: Select all
a:hover   { color: #002b3d; }

followed a short time later by
Code: Select all
.postlink:hover {
   background-color: #002b3d;
   color: #002b3d;
}


well that's problematic now, isn't it? ;)

Test link http://www.erfworld.com

Yup, I'll look at altering the behavior.

Update: hover effect removed for the moment.

perfect! the link text still turns that color when hovered, but doesn't blot out ;)
