Specific DIV Hyperlink Color

Hi,
I would like to have a completely unique Hyperlink color for a page as compared to the rest of the website.
So for example, if the active hyperlink color for the website is grey, I would like the active hyperlink color on one particular page to be red.

Can someone explain how this can be done please?


Thanks!

Add a class to the hyperlinks on the "special" page, and then use css to target the class and specify the link color.

HTML
<a href="www.google.com" class="uniqueLink">Google</a>

Open in new window


CSS
.uniqueLink {
  color: red;
}

.uniqueLink:visited {
  color: green;
}

Open in new window


Here is a Fiddle Demo.

If you have a lot of links on the page, it may be more efficient to use a class on a container (whatever contains all of the links).  Here's an example of that approach

HTML
<div class="uniqueLink container">
     <a href="www.google.com">Google</a>
     <a href="www.yahoo.com">Yahoo</a>
</div>

Open in new window


CSS
.uniqueLink > a {
  color: red;
}

.uniqueLink > a:visited {
  color: green;
}

Open in new window
