    There are two ways I can think of too solve this issue. I don't have any specific code for either scenario.

    First you could put a background color behind the sidebar itself. That way you wouldn't have to do anything fancy. Just some, hopefully, simple CSS.

    The other method that comes to mind would be somewhat tricky and would require Javascript. It might be possible to track the sidebar and detect what background color is behind it and then alter the color of the links.

  2. Sounds like you are using v7.1. What SS calls templates for v7.1 are not like templates work in v7.0. All v7.1 sites have the same underlying structure. Whereas with v7.0 changing a template can make major changes to the underlying structure of the site.

    In v7.1 what SS calls templates are really a group of color themes with particular settings, along with a few other bits and bobs. The underlying structure does not change.

    So, with some work any v7.1 site can be made to look like any other v7.1 at least as far as the colors go.

    Unfortunately there is not an easy way to switch "templates" on v7.1.

    Now if you've just started your site and you've not paid yet and not invested a lot of time changing the site you could start another trial site with the v7.1 template you want to use.

    Check out Heather Tovey's most excellent looking Squarespace ID Finder. It's a more user friendly way to get the section id, once you get it installed.

    There is another option. You can target the page by section position using nth-child pseudo selector. Whether that targeting will work for your needs, I don't know.

    Targeting by section id is good because it should follow the section around the page. The nth-child pseudo selector depends on the position of things and if the position of your element of interest changes, the effect can be ruined.

  4. I had an odd editing experience with text links in a text block yesterday. I can't describe exactly what happened other that adding links to text went horribly wrong and I had to end up deleting the text and start over again. It was only three words as I was testing something.

    Once I redid the text things worked as expected.

    So I can't confirm the issue you are seeing but perhaps we can get other reports of good/bad behaviour? 

  5. Please post the URL for a page on your site where we can see your issue. I think you've described what you want to accomplish well so it's just a matter of seeing if Javascript can get you the rest of the way to your desired effect.

    If your site is not public please set up a site-wide password, if you've not already done so.

    Post the password here.

    Adding a site-wide password is not a security breach. Please read the documentation at the link provided to understand how it works.

    Please read the documentation at the link provided on how to share a link to your site to understand how it works. A link to the backend of the your site won’t work for us, i.e. a url that contains /config/.

    We can then take a look at your issue.

  6. Without being able to see the context of everything it is hard to say for sure. I think the kind of logic you are looking for isn't possible with CSS. CSS is kind of like a hierarchy and deeper elements can't effect elements higher up.

    For the kind of effect you want you would need Javascript. The Javascript could check for the existence of an element and then apply a custom class to turn on your effect.

    Using Javascript requires the business plan or above.
