[Pro] Simple Text Link Question

Hi Simple this might be … and its something I have overlooked

At the moment i have a site which has a text nav at the top which is just text … white text … when i hover over it it goes green
#CLIENTS a:link { color:#fff }
#CLIENTS a:hover { color:#bdd530 }

Which have been doing via colour links in the inspector …but that provides loads of code at the start of the page

#CLIENTS a:link { color:#fff }
#CLIENTS a:hover { color:#bdd530 }
#WorkspaceGraphics a:link { color:#fff }
#WorkspaceGraphics a:visited { color:#fff }
#WorkspaceGraphics a:hover { color:#bdd530 }
#WorkspaceGraphics a:active { color:#fff }
#ExhibitonsGraphics a:link { color:#fff }
#ExhibitonsGraphics a:visited { color:#fff }
#ExhibitonsGraphics a:hover { color:#bdd530 }
#ExhibitonsGraphics a:active { color:#fff }
#Signage a:link { color:#fff }

etc etc
i guess this could be done simple and easy apply some style sheet … (ps new the external style sheets) ok is there a better way which reduces the code…

Why not just use the CSS menu action - you don’t have to utilise the dropdown part of it.

You probably won’t get much less code

Hi Stu,
Freeway is creating link styles that relate directly to links within the selected layer (namely the clients item). I would suggest clicking on the pasteboard so nothing on the page is selected and using the Page Appearance Tab (the paintbrush) in the Inspector palette to set your page base link styles.
In the Link section of this tab of the Inspector palette you can set the styles for all of the links on the page regardless of the layer they are in. If you want to override these base styles for a particular area (maybe one that has a light background that your link colours won’t display against) then you can select the layer and define the link styles as you were before.

What you should end up with are a set of styles that relate to the whole page;

a:link { color:#fff }
a:hover { color:#bdd530 }

optionally followed by any specific link styles for a given item;

#CLIENTS a:link { color:#000 }
#CLIENTS a:hover { color:#999 }

I hope this helps.
Regards,
Tim.
