Black and blue links mixed up :(


it seems like the tree "category/category/forum/thread" gives me a black link on the first page, but a "category/forum/thread" gives me a blue link on the first page.

I think I want blue links, at least not mixed colours...but if I change that black link to something (I choose red so we can see better) all category links change (but no other links). How can I solve all this to some kind of uniform color pattern, or is this how it should be?

(The red link color is set in CP->Style prop->General->Link).

Maybe it doesnt matter if the links are black in those places, I dont know. Can you also tell me why my tabs in the sidebar gets red when hovering? Would rather like a softer color there but I dont know how to change it. :) Thx.

Normally all of these link colors use the @primaryMedium swatch from the color palette, but you have changed them so they are different. You need to make them the same, or point them all to the same swatch.

The red tab hover is in your:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> PageNav, Link Groups and Tabs -> Tab, Hover State
Thank you Jake! Is there some kind of map or blueprint, so I can learn what every element is called? I find it hard to put names on every little element on a site (to then know what to change in the CP).
