text turning colors--hyperlink? (4 posts)

    Thanks for the great plugin! I've been able to customize every aspect of the slideshow except that my text turns blue when I hover on it. I assume that this is to enable a hyperlink, but I don't want to link my pictures to anything--just want a caption.

    Any advice? Thanks in advance!

    You can prevent this behaviour by customizing the slideshow's stylesheet, find out how to do so in this thread.

    You'll probably have to add the following rules to your custom stylesheet to fix the problem:

    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description h2 a:hover,
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description p a:hover { color: #fff; }

    This will set the color or the text in the description boxes to white. Of course you can change this to any color you'd like.

    Here's what I ended up with:

    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description { background: #0067B1; width: 100%; }
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description h2 { font-size: .8em; text-align: center; }
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description p { text-align: center; }
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description h2 a,
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description p a { color: #FFFFFF; }
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description h2 a:hover,
    .slideshow_container .slideshow_description p a:hover { color: #fff; }

    For whatever reason, it's still turning blue every time I hover. It also gets an underline--does that help at all?

    I have had success in changing the color of the font, just none in keeping it consistent when hovering. Thanks for your help!!!

    i've got a similar problem: my learning is, that that the headline and the description function as links and are therefore overridden by the regular css-styles for my site... i also can not get rid of this pesky little problem...
