Text color disappearing when creating Links

Jul 17, 2012 7:16 AM

Tags: #dreamweaver #links #cs6 #troubleshoot

Hello!

I am turning some text into links in Dreamweaver CS6, but for some reason, one of the links font color is turning transparent! Both text links are coded the exact same and have the same CSS commands. When I take off the link <a> of the transparent word, it shows up again, so clearly something is not happy about the one link. Please help! This is driving me crazy!

 

you can see what I'm talking about here:

Looking forward to getting this solved.

    I'm not seeing the problem here on FF13.

     

    In IE9 there is no hover at all as IE doesn't recognize text-shadow.

     

    ETA: Scratch that, your visited link color is the same as the background color on that side.

    Fix these errors http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fsb3m.com%2Fmi ndhandle%2FmainIndex.html first. Then come back here with the remaining problem(s).

    I'm guessing one or more of the errors Gramps is pointing to is allowing the CSS attribute for that one to be dropped and it's picking up the wrong info.

    What is this about?

     

    Your page is coded to end here

     

    </body>

     

    </html>

     

    but you have this stuff following the end of the page

    /a></div>
    <div id="rightBrain1" class="mainFont"><a href="rightBrainIndex.html">RIGHT&nbsp;MIND</a></div>
    </body>
    </html>
    id="mainWrapper1"><img src="Images/correctLogo.png" id="mainLogo" width="300" height="300" alt="Mindhandle logo"></div>
    <div id="leftBrain1" class="mainFont"><a href="leftIndex.html" class="transition"><font color="#666">LEFT&nbsp;BRAIN</font></a></div>
    <div id="rightBrain1" class="mainFont"><a href="rightBrainIndex.html" class="transition">RIGHT MIND</a></div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Hey Casey

     

    We only have this link which still has the extraneous code below the end of the page

    Validating youe CSS comes up with 33 warnings about same color text as background.

     

    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sb3m .com%2Fmindhandle%2FmainStyles.css&profile=css3&usermedium=all&warning =1&vextwarning=&lang=en

     

    Perhaps if you were to review the list you might spot something amiss.

     

    If I recall you used a two-color BG image. and might not need a BG color
