    Hi there,

    I have been building a new website with the Ultra theme, which in general works really fine, but I still have some issues with the links on my new website. I have tried to change the colour of links in the Customizer/Theme Design/Content settings to red, but whenever links appear in specific contexts, such as paragraphs, they remain blue. Please see a page where both types appear for the effect. I would expect the Customizer setting to override such subdivisions in the page, or should I make separate changes elsewhere? I’m quite new to WordPress, so sorry if I’m missing something obvious. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Best wishes,

    Rutger

    Hi Rutger

    Thanks for your support, it’s most appreciated.

    So sorry for this hassle. The problem has been fixed in our development version. Can you wait a couple of days for the next update or would you like me to send a Custom CSS hotfix that you can apply right away?

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your quick reply! If it’s just a few days, and you are already busy fixing it, I can definitely wait for the update. Many thanks in advance!

    Hi again 🙂 Please, could you go to Appearance > Customize > Theme Settings > Ultra Premium. Is your order number in place? There should be an update ready. Thanks.

    Hi Andrew,

    My order number is activated in these settings. As far as I can see, WordPress doesn’t say anything about an update. Should I activate or install it manually?

    Many thanks again,

    Rutger

    Thanks so much Andrew, the colours are fine now! Strangely, the underline/hover properties are still different with a paragraph or list from outside it, but I’ve managed to work around that manually.

    Super, glad we’ve made some progress.

    I think I know what you’re seeing. The problem we’ve run into is the underline being applied to link elements that it shouldn’t be. So, to try and solve that, we limited that link style to normal typographical elements. If you need any Custom CSS to solve a problem like this, please, send a link and let me know where I can see the issue. I could then write something to help with the problem.

    Dear Andrew,

    Thanks! I can change everything to plain texts perfectly fine, but I haven’t been able to change a thing about the looks of links within a paragraphs and the like (simple CSS as I understand it, like “p a:hover{” etc. doesn’t affect it). For now I solved the issue by basically putting everything into some context, so at least it was consistent, which was fine for the moment. If you’re willing to fix this in a more systematic manner, however, that would really be great. Please have a look at this page as an example: http://demodernetijd.nl/tijdschrift/#auteurs. The top bit is in paragraphs, the bottom isn’t.

    FYI: I have this MimeType Link Icons plugin for the PDF logo, but I don’t think, deactivating it doesn’t make any difference as far as I can see.

    Thanks for explaining. What we could try there in terms of Custom CSS is the following:

    .textwidget a {
    border-bottom: 1px dotted #bf3526;
    color: #bf3526;
    }
    
    .textwidget a:hover {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #bf3526;
    }
