Changed Link Color in CSS, Not Working

    I changed my link color in the css (blaskan theme) but it’s not showing up as the same color throughout my site – in the right column where i have widgets, some of the links are a darker blue. any suggestions?

    Here’s what I added to the CSS:
    .type-post footer, .type-attachment footer {
    border-top: 1px dashed #CCCCCC;
    clear: both;
    color: #999999;
    display: none;
    font-size: 12px;
    margin: 20px 0 0;
    padding: 5px 0 10px;

    body {

    h1 {
    font-size: 2em;

    h2 {
    font-family: proxima nova, sans-serif;
    font-size: .3em;
    text-transform: uppercase;

    strong {
    font-style: italic;
    text-transform: uppercase;

    a:link {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #08a0c9;

    a:hover {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #08a0c9;

    The blog I need help with is


    I haven’t looked too closely, but I’m guessing that the darker blue links are visited links. This is a useful visual cue to help visitors identify which links they’ve already seen.

    If you want to override, add a:visited to your links style, like this:

    a:link, a:visited {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #08a0c9;


    I am very very new to CSS… I need to change the link color on our site.. and I can not find a way to get to the CSS .

    Also change the post tile to a different H setting .. any suggestions?


    Hi Roberto, your question is about a site using a theme other than Blaskan (like the question above). In the future, can you please create a separate help request if your question is about a different theme?

    To change the basic link color in the Mixfolio theme, add the following to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor and click the Preview button to see how it will look:

    a {
