Cufon link hover state

  • # March 1, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Here is the link to the site I am looking for help on:

    I have done a few google searches and haven’t managed to find anything yet to help solve my problem where the links at the top are not changing colour on hover, i have tried adding {hover: ‘true’} which i had seen somewhere before, but it isn’t working probably because i haven’t done it right. Any ideas?

    Copy/Paste this in your header, removing the old one.

    Also, not sure why you have a period to hover? Never seen that before.

    I have a couple questions regarding cufon as well…

    Is there anyway to eliminate the font flicker when sites load?

    I there a way to create selectable text?

    Regarding font flicker which I’m assuming you mean font jumping?

    # March 1, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    Yes the font jumping

    I think the best way to fix that is to use a fallback font that is a resemblance of the font you’re embedding.

    Thanks for the help with the cufon stuff, got the hover to work. Now i am having a problem with adding a background image to the hover state, i can get the image to show but as soon as i try to position it at the bottom and to the left undernieth the text the image disapears, not sure what i have done wrong.
