  • I CANNOT change colors with this default theme…… HELP..

    Look at my site, http://reformedpolitics.com and you’ll see that the visited links are in white. You can’t see them. I tried to make the grays grayer in the background but nothing changes. Why is this?

  • Your visited links have inherited the white colour from this line:
    #header a, a:active, a:visited, a:hover {color:#fff}

    why is that line even in the header. there are no links!!!

    Actually the title of your blog is a link in the header.

    Yeah I don;t see how to fix it other than taking out the php and just making my own header.

    this site was converted from blogspot

    find this line and change it:
    a:visited {color: #xxxxxx; text-decoration: none;}

    obviously pick a color for the xxxxxx and it will correct the problem.

    It is here in the default file you are using:
    /* Begin Typography & Colors */
    body {
    font-size: 62.5%; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    font-family: ‘Lucida Grande’, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #666666;
    color: #333;
    text-align: center;
    }

    a {color: #931414; text-decoration:none;}
    a:visited {color: #0066cc; text-decoration: none;}
    ***a:hover {color: #931414; text-decoration:underline;}***
    a:active {color: #931414; text-decoration:underline;}
