    I added a link to an article on a static page and it does not display. For more information visit ........

    When you hover over it you can see it but it is invisible. The font color is not white and I can see nothing else in the css that could cause the problem.

    Here is the link: http://blog.mpksystems.com/beds24-online-booking-system/

    Thanks for your support

    Hi,
    can you give more details? I see that you have a link at the end of the post

    For more information visit the Beds24 webiste.
    that works also I see that you have this :

    Beds24.com

    at the begging of the article that hasn't got a link but I didn't find anything else can you be more specific?
    Also when you crated the article did you use the visual editor?or the html editor?
    Regards

    the problem is the non displaying link at the end of the text: For more information visit the the Beds24 website.

    I used the visual editor. This is what I see in the html editor:
    <div>For more information visit the Beds24 website.</div>

    Using chrome inspect I saw that you have:

    footer-nav li a, a:visited {
    text-decoration: none;
    padding: 10px 10px;
    color: white;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 black;
    outline: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    }

    that shows color: white; with a line across showing that this is overwritten even so if I uncheck it then the link appears, I would advise you to check css for a:visited to make sure it overwrites the rules. Regards
    edit: or just change the color to balck at line 362 in your stylesheet.

    this link is not in footer-nav (it is not in the footer at all, you can see that when you firebug the link) so this css does not apply. You can see that because it is not dislaying the text-shadow. The div surrounding the link is set to display links black.

    On another page links in articles display fine: http://blog.mpksystems.com/privacy/

    except for the fact that the problem page has two colums i cant see the difference.

    The footer-nav is the one that shows the issue but the issue is caused by errors in your stylesheet errors that you can check using w3 validator resolve the errors and then the link won't inherit the color from the footer-nav.
    Even in your privacy page the last link is under footer-nav but the browser resolves the color different there, but the issue exists.
    Fix the issues from your stylesheet and then check the color of the visited link.
    Regards
