Modifying class, in a cascading way, for one element of page

Posted on 2012-03-23

Last Modified: 2012-03-28
Hello

Please look at this page:

http://rickythealien.com/  (development site)

There are two buttons near the bottom of the page.   Both have the word "Birthday" in them.

I want to make the color of the buttons white and the text also white.  I only want the css change to affect these types (class?)  of buttons.  

I tried this code and it did not work.  (Initially just to turn the font into white text.  The next step would be to turn the button also into white, which I have not attempted yet.)

.doodie-postcontent a:link a.ODude {
    color: #ffffff;
    text-decoration: underline;
    font-size: 18px;
}}

Open in new window



Thanks!

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're wanting to do, but have you tried just updating the CSS in the referenced stylesheet at http://rickythealien.com/components/com_odudecard/include/default.css?

/*Button*/

.ODude {
      -moz-box-shadow:inset 0px 1px 0px 0px #ffffff;
      -webkit-box-shadow:inset 0px 1px 0px 0px #ffffff;
      box-shadow:inset 0px 1px 0px 0px #ffffff;
      background:-webkit-gradient( linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0.05, #f9f9f9), color-stop(1, #e9e9e9) );
      background:-moz-linear-gradient( center top, #f9f9f9 5%, #e9e9e9 100% );
      filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#f9f9f9', endColorstr='#e9e9e9');
      background-color:#f9f9f9;
      -moz-border-radius:3px;
      -webkit-border-radius:3px;
      border-radius:3px;
      border:1px solid #dcdcdc;
      display:inline-block;
      color:#FFFFFF;
      font-family:Verdana;
      font-size:12px;
      font-weight:normal;
      padding:3px 14px;
      text-decoration:none;
      text-shadow:1px 1px 0px #ffffff;
}

.ODude:hover {
      background:-webkit-gradient( linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0.05, #e9e9e9), color-stop(1, #f9f9f9) );
      background:-moz-linear-gradient( center top, #e9e9e9 5%, #f9f9f9 100% );
      filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#e9e9e9', endColorstr='#f9f9f9');
      background-color:#e9e9e9;
}.ODude:active {
      position:relative;
      top:1px;
}

Hi

Sorry for the huge delay in responding.  

Yes, you are correct the modifications should be made in the default.css in the url you indicated.

I was able to modify the default.css to get rid of the button area, but I am still seeing the black font text.

Attached is the code I have so far.  So what is left is to modify the default.css to make the BUTTON text white no matter if it is active, hovered, etc.   Always white and no underline.

Thanks!

The only things I can see on your page are two Links that say Birthday towards the bottom of the page. Can't see any buttons.

The colour of your links is styled in template.css, line 74.

To override this add a rule for your class of link to templates.css

.doodie-postcontent a.ODude:link {
    color: #FF0000; //set the links to red
}

Interesting.

I added the new code to the end of template.css  and it is showing up in firebug that it should be red. But it is showing up as black in the html.

I see in firebug that in....

http://rickythealien.com/components/com_odudecard/include/default.css  (line 248)  

....that a hover is set for black.

Could this be causing the black to "override" the red??

Checked it in Firefox and IE and the text is appearing as red. Although in IE you do have a blue button-like background - nowhere to be seen in Firefox.

For a full set of pseudo links, you may want to set the colour for all 4 states.

.doodie-postcontent a.ODude:link {color:#FF0000;}      /* unvisited link */
.doodie-postcontent a.ODude:visited {color:#FF0000;}  /* visited link */
.doodie-postcontent a.ODude:hover {color:#FF0000;}  /* mouse over link */
.doodie-postcontent a.ODude:active {color:#FF0000;}  /* selected link */

For them to work properly, the order is important.
