Thanks for your quick reply. It is a widget from a plugin that I’m having trouble, so I wonder if it might be a widget-side issue. Is there a way to know? If it helps, the plugin is: Google Calendar Events, and you can see the issue in the sidebar at: http://uwin.washington.edu under “Upcoming Events”
If it is a widget-side issue, I’ll get in touch with the author to check in about it – which was actually my first instinct, until I saw that thread about other widgets having an issue with the custom link color. In the meantime, do you think it’s possible to override the CSS for all links to set the color?
