[resolved] Email share link style can look wrong (2 posts)

    Is there any way for the links created by this plugin to use their own style instead of the parent theme's style?

    For certain types of content, the links in the body may be styled in a special manner.

    Since this plugin inserts content in the body itself, it ends up with the style of the body.

    Is there any way for this plugin's style files to avoid inheriting the parent link styles for the Email share? The facebook, g+, etc buttons are styled correctly - since they don't use <a href ...> links. Only the Email share looks bad.

    I did finally fix this by creating a child theme style and overriding really simple share styles, as described here:
    Link style posts incorrectly styling Email share button.

    In short, I added this:

    article.format-link .entry-content .really_simple_share a:after {
    content: none;

    but would be nice if there were some way for this plugin itself to include this fix. Not sure if that is possible using CSS, or if the only way is for each user to create a custom style file.

    Hi bwooster47,
    thanks for noticing it. Being this issue related to a specific theme, I think the best choice is, as you did, to just override the theme CSS.
