Sidebar Link Color Change

  • I am using a theme called iMovie, and I’m trying to change the link color in the sidebar (left). The URL is http://www.into-the-dark.com

    I’ve been trying to chase this down for hours and checked every post here related to this topic, but I’m still at a loss.

    The stylesheet contains the following:

    .sidebar a {
    	text-decoration: none;
    	color: a2a2a2;
    	}
    
    .sidebar a:hover {
    	text-decoration: none;
    	color:#f24f24;
    	}

    The hex colors in this CSS do match my current sidebar link colors, however changing them has absolutely no effect.

    I’ve tried clearing my cache and reloading the page, I’ve searched through the stylesheet for more instances of these colors (there aren’t any).

    I’m really at a deadend – any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Change to

    .sidebar ul li a{
    	text-decoration: none;
    	color: #a2a2a2;
    	}
    
    .sidebar ul li a:hover {
    	text-decoration: none;
    	color:#f24f24;
    	}

    changing the colors in those posted styles should work;

    however, the .sidebar a color code is missing the #

    i.e. the color code has to be #a2a2a2

    also, make sure to clear the browser cache after the changes, to see the effect – ‘CTRL F5’ or ‘reload’ or what ever your browser needs…

    Tarsem – Thanks, I’ll give that a try.

    alchymyth – The missing # is just a typo on my part. (Believe me I’ve tried changing these a million times.) Also, I did clear my cache, as I mentioned in my post.

    your styles are cached or minified, with w3tc plugin from within your WordPress (?);
    this might stop the changes to get applied (?)
