Color Link Is White And Doesn't Show Since Upgrading To 2.3.4 Or 2.3.5

Recommended Posts

In one of the recent updates either to 2.3.4 or to 2.3.5 it seems all the links on my site are now white and so don't show up. If you hoover over them you see them as the color they are supposed to be. All was fine before one of these updates.

Here's the only CSS code I am using that modifies links in any way:

/* SIMPLE POST TITLE TREATMENT Makes post titles change to link color hover with no underline.

@pl-link is tied to your link color. Change this to any hex code to change. */

h1.entry-title a:hover,h2.entry-title a:hover, h3.entry-title a:hover, h4.entry-title a:hover {

text-decoration:none !important;color:#A6393C;transition(all .2s ease-in-out);

}

Site: www.qdinformation.com

I did deactivate all plugins and still had the same problem.

Hi there, can you see an Less/parse errors in your admin bar or in the dashboard? I've pasted your css into my test site and it seems to be working fine.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

No, there are no errors in the admin bar. Not sure exactly where I should see these errors in the Pagelines Dashboard since I've never had an error. I have other custom code as well but think I went through all that and nothing else affects links.

I've done some more poking around with Firebug and the CSS that is working for the links is below. I can see that my code to set the color is there but is being over ridden. If I change the color from #FFFFFF to A6393G it works but can't find where I should make the change within pagelines.

html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre, a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code, del, dfn, em, font, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp, small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var, b, u, i, center, dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li, fieldset, form, label, legend, table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td {

[clipped a bunch of non-relevant code]

http://w...51824775/'>http://w...51824775/

a {

color:#FFFFFF;

}

social-media

a {

text-decoration:none;

}

http://w...51824775/'>http://w...51824775/

a {

color:#A6393C;

}

Note: It didn't show up when I pasted this in but the color:#A6393C is actually struck thru i.e. color:#A6393C

I had the same problem and found that the links were color coded in a plugin. Do you have plugins where this problem is occurring?

I disabled all plugins and still had the problem (see the first post). Also, I've not added any plugins since this happened so I don't think it’s a plugin although I am going to try it again just increase I screwed up last time and didn't get them all disabled.

Tried again ensuring all plugins were deactivated and still had the problem so it definitely isn't a plugin. Just wondering what changed in Pagelines that caused this but unfortunately I'm not sure with which update this occurred.

This is resolved. I had time today (Saturday) andI went through all my CSS line by line for anything that changed color to white and found a typo I had made at some point that just happened to occur at the same time as my upgrading Pagelines. I have a habit of accidentally hitting the a key when I really want the shift key and it happened in the absolute wrong place; in the CSS where I change the color of the sidebar widgets text to white.

Thanks for everyone's help and sorry to have troubled you.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
