[SOLVED] style some links differently...

Hello all,

I'm trying to style some of the links on one particular page differently than all other links. No matter what I add to the css, though, I can see it being overridden by this:

a:link, a:visited, a:active {
color:#FFFFFF;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;

Which must be automatically generated by Atahualpa, since I entered this in the ATO--> "Body, Text, Links"

In this case, I want make the font-weight:normal. What can I do??

What can I do to just style a few links without affecting all of them?


Using
WP Version 3.0
Atahualpa 3.5.1

Thanks for any help!

You have to use a unique selector for those links. I use the Firebug extension with Firefox for that purpose. If you post a URL I can perhaps suggest something.

Thanks for your response. This is my site:

http://www.fuzzpodmusic.dreamhosters.com/bio/


Which I'm trying to make imitate this site:
http://web.me.com/fuzzpodmusic/Site/Bio.html

See the list of links toward the bottom of the left column? I can't get those styles to change without affecting all links in the site.

Try this
HTML Code:
.graphic_textbox_layout_style_default li {text-decoration:underline;}

I inserted that bit of code into the css and that didn't do it. Thanks for trying, though.

Did you put it in ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts?

I did put it in the css inserts field. The underline works, but because it's affecting the li tag, it also underlines the bullet, which looks bad. (check links above)

Weirdly, when I look in firebug, it seems as if even the underline is crossed out, even though it's obviously functioning.

Key thing is to NOT affect other links in the site. I tried just making a new class to apply only here, but they're always overridden by this:
a:link, a:visited, a:active {
color:#FFFFFF;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;

which must be coming from my ATO settings.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Thanks for your help...

How about this selector instead of the li one?
HTML Code:
.graphic_textbox_layout_style_default a {text-decoration:underline;}

Bamn. That did it. Thanks!!!!

I wish I understood what it is that's happening here. Is this class:

.graphic_textbox_layout_style_default

something that Atahualpa generates or did you find it in my horribly messy css?
(I copied the css from the site I'm imitating, including a bunch of unnecessary crap probably generated by Dreamweaver or somesuch.)

In any case, I really appreciate your time and efforts.

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
That is not something generatred by atahualpa. But it is working so that is the important thing.
