I had this question after viewing The Menu is good, but needs a couple of Tweaks.

I added these two CSS rules:

.sub-menu-item > a:hover {
      color:red;
}

.sub-menu-item > a:link {
      color:black;
}

The color of the link does indeed show the text black,  but on hovering,  the color of the text doesn't change to red.

You may have a more specific style that is taking precedence. Can you post a link to the live page?

You can try this...
.sub-menu-item > a:hover {
      color:red !important;
}

Open in new window

The !important means it will override any style that has precedence and use this rule instead, but it would help to have a link to the website so we can see all the code.

Hi,

I added the !important and it works.  Not sure what is colliding with it.  But that works for me.  Thank you sir.
