Some of my links rollover color doesn't trigger?

Jul 19, 2012 1:05 PM

Using DW MX 2004. This page has links that only some of change to yellow upon rollover. Not sure what I did wrong but hope and easy "global" fix?

 

Thanks for any help!

    There is a whole bunch of style overkill on that page. All you need are the a: styles, you can remove the .style ones from the stylesheet. Also, your styles are commented out - remove the comments <!-- -->. You will also need to remove the style classes from each of your links.

     

    Eg: ideally, this -

    <td class="style34"><a href="classmates.htm#JimmyAhlf" target="_blank"><span class="style31 style34">James</span></a></td>

     

    should become

    <td><a href="classmates.htm#JimmyAhlf" target="_blank">James</a></td>

     

    A better way instead of tables would be to use an unordered list

    <ul>

    <li><a href="#">Name</a></li>

    </ul>

     

    From a design point of view, text in red going to yellow is an accessibility no-no. Try it going to a darker red or blue. Yellow on the web in generally avoided.

    Thanks for feedback! Is there an ez way to do all links on page or do I need to do one at a time?

    Sitewide Find & Replace in DW

     

    e.g. Find <td class="style34">, Replace with <td>
