    How can I remove the underline from links?

    For the moment I haven’t created a child theme – I’m just tweaking the CSS in the Editor to try and get it working. All text-decoration properties are set to “none”. I searched the CSS for ‘underline’ and can find no instances. Argh!

    The following is, I assume, the relevant section:

    /**
     * 6.1 Links
     */
    
    a {
    	color: #2798A0;
    	text-decoration: none;
    }
    
    a:hover,
    a:focus {
    	color: #707070;
    	color: rgba(51, 51, 51, 0.7);
    }

    I’m using a plugin to display Etsy shop listings on the page, and they look ugly with their links underlined. The plugin is inheriting this from the theme. If I switch to a theme where links aren’t underlined, the underlines on the Etsy links disappear.

  • Hey there Sarah,

    Hope you’re well today!

    I strongly suggest not editing theme core files since all changes will be lost once you update the theme. If you don’t want to use child theme you can add custom CSS using plugin similar to this one http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css

    Once the plugin is installed and activated you can add this code to Appearance >> Custom CSS.

    The reason why you can’t find underline and why text decoration is not working is because links have bottom border on them. To remove it please try adding the following CSS code:

    .entry-content a, .entry-summary a, .page-content a, .comment-content a, .pingback .comment-body > a {
    border-bottom: none;
    }

    This should remove bottom border from your links. Please let me know if this helps 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

    Cheers,
    Bojan

    Gah! Should have thought of borders. 🙂

    Don’t worry – I do use child themes. I was just having a quick fiddle as I’ve only just set this up and I was still deciding whether to stick with Twenty Fifteen or look for a new theme. 🙂

    This worked…. Very nearly. I have one underline left, in the widget area on the left. I assume I need to add another class to the list above. Anyone know the class for widget area links?

    Thanks in advance. 🙂

    Fixed! Added “.widget a,” to the code provided above by Bojan. 🙂

    Hey again Sarah,

    Oops! I somehow missed that one 🙁

    This should do the trick:

    .textwidget a {
    border-bottom: none;
    }

    Or you can simply add .textwidget a separated by a comma to the code I previously posted, like this:

    .entry-content a, .entry-summary a, .page-content a, .comment-content a, .pingback .comment-body > a, .textwidget a {
    border-bottom: none;
    }

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Cheers,
    Bojan
