Dear support forums,
I am new to WordPress and just barely skimming along with learning CSS. My blog is at http://www.songofthecedars.com and the theme is Customized Twenty Twelve.
For ease of seeing what I'm doing while editing, I've changed all my custom CSS tags to display links as gaudy purple and then bright green upon hover. I've been troubleshooting through the div names figuring out how to change each link on the page, but have run into the following problems, all of which should be obvious when looking at the blog:
1. The title, "Song of the Cedars" appears as purple but then becomes WordPress blue upon hover.
2. The two links in the body of my test post ("this is a link" and "so is this") display the bright green upon hover, but when active appear grey when they should be purple.
3. Down at the bottom of the page where the theme is listed, the links appear purple but, as with the title, are WordPress blue upon hover.
4. In the widgets menu, I have some external links which are both displaying and hovering as grey. I am, however, somewhat confident that I've at least tagged the correct div for them as I'm able to remove the underline from the links by setting "text-decoration: none".
My post title and "leave a reply" links are displaying properly, purple link with bright green on hover.
I am *assuming* that my issue here is that there is an overriding div category to the ones I am using, and I need to be setting my colors in that?
I thank you in advance for any advice, I'm hoping that this is a relatively simple issue since there is nothing overly complicated about what I'm doing and I haven't changed very much.
The blog I need help with is songofthecedars.com.
