Imprecise Font Colors

Recommended Posts

bhowton

Here's the live version of my site:  hairydogreview.com

 

Notice the second full-width black section. The text in the Textbox at top is gray, though the section settings and a CSS class should be making it white. Any idea why?

 

Thanks in advance for all consideration of the problem.

I've isolated what I think is the culprit. For all linked elements with tag <a>, font color is white. All unlinked elements are gray, which is the target color of the hover transition. Is it possible to have everything white and still have the transition element work?

Is that list part of a plugin?

 

I've tried inspecting it without success.

Rob, I've since changed the design. I was having too much trouble with text. But, in case you'd like to replicate it, here is what I did:

 

1.  I made the social icons as defined in the Create a Branding Section Tutorial in the DMS Docs.

2. I made a section and set its parameters as black background, white text.

3. I added a text box and typed something.

4. I put that textbox next to the box containing the social icons.

 

Because I experienced two issues with this setup, because the textbox with text in it was not inline withe social textbox, and because the text textbox had gray text while everything else in the full-width section had white, I deleted everything and redesigned a social section from scratch.

 

To see a similar problem live. I can direct you to the footer of my site. The text in the footer menu is gray. But this may not be the same problem. It may be an inherited a:visited tag that I have not yet had time to change.

 

Best,

Brian

The text on PageLines site looks terrible.  It seems they're victims of this too.

Danny, Not originally. Though this is also something I would like to change to white.

Danny, Thanks :)

I'll have to stop asking CSS questions soon. With every answer I receive, I feel like I should have found it myself.
