Link Colors

I'm sure some of you have noticed. There's something amiss at The Zoo Crew blog. My embedded links keep changing color. What gives? I like them to be white, and they always have been until recently. Even if I try to change their color, it doesn't work. Nothing changes.

Has anyone else ever experienced this? Do you know what I need to do to take back the control of my blog link colors? Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Did you add in any new widget or anything new in your site? The last time I experienced something like this was because I added a widget from an affiliate program. If this is not the case, then I wouldn't have any idea what went wrong.

Tina, It looks like some javascript is applying style info to your links at the end of the page load. It might be from some widget you added but are not using.

You could add the following code to the end of your template, just before the "body" end tag:

"$style type="text/css"$a:link {color: #ffffff;} a:visited {color: #ffffff;} a:hover {color: #000000;} a img {border-width:0;}$/style$"
(replace the $ with "<" or ">", minus the quotes, blogger doesn't let me put tag codes in comments)

This will re-apply the style code for your links after the javascript has changed the color to blue. In other words it will change the color back to white at the end of the page load.

Let me know if you need help doing this.

Thank you both! I will try your suggestion in the morning, Brad. It is likely from me adding the Entrecard Top 10 to my sidebar. That's the only thing I've change, but it's nothing special widget wise or anything. However, I will try to reverse it's effects!

I am not really sure. Could it be your theme your using that has certain color links in them. That's about all I can think of.

You are always welcome. Have a great day.

Brad - I played around with the code you provided, but I could not get it to work. I just deleted the suspected gadget, and all is normal again. I'll have to find a different way to have my EC Top Droppers listed on my site.
