Link hover problem


Well-known member
Well upgrading to beta 4, and reverting templates really messed up some things on my theme, but Brogran helped me with those. I found another problem, when I hover over a link or click this is what happens any ideas, or can you tell me what to do?



try right clicking in chrome > inspect elements > and see which a:hover is set at, where, and if you can uncheck it to figure out if you get the right one.

I think the problem is the color of the text when highlighted can you kindly tell me what to change or do.

That link and background color is in this template:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> xenforo.css

		.ugc a:hover,
		.ugc a:focus
			background: @secondaryLightest url('@imagePath/xenforo/gradients/category-23px-light.png') repeat-x top;
			color: @secondaryDarker;

this is a property that should be editable from the style manager.
i am really trying to avoid directly editing the css templates. that always seems to turn into a nightmare come update time ;) if i were to add an alternative .ugc a:hover and .ugc a:focus in additional.css, would it over-ride the css in xenforo.css then?
