a:href color different in IE and other browsers

  • # March 10, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Hey guys.
    [codepen]( “codepen”)

    Open it up in Firefox or Chrome and then in Internet Explorer.
    You will see link color is different.
    I would love to have links below “Last from blog” to be blue but it seems like I can’t.
    They should be by default since i have it set already

    Help please :)

    Are you sure that is a valid hex colour?

    That color is overridden by:

    .linkovidno li a:link, .footerunutra a:visited{

    I don’t know why IE ignores that though.

    @Paulie_D why wouldn’t it be? Hex color can have 3 or 6 digits from 0-9 and a-f :)

    Of course #2358B1 is a valid hex color. Tired Paulie? :P

    CrocoDillon thanks :)

    When i was changing div names it left out visited so thats why it was like this:

    .linkovidno li a:link, .footerunutra a:visited{

    it is now

    .linkovidno li a:link, .linkovidno a:visited{
