Changing text color when hovering over links in 7.1

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://ghostrightdesign.com

I have designed multiple sites on previous versions of Squarespace and was super disappointed to find out that 7.1 no longer supports changing the color of a link when hovering over in the navigation menu or in the main content of a page.

This seems like such a basic function that has been available on practically every site I've ever designed or visited.

Does anyone know an easy fix for this? I'm not super code savvy.

Thanks!

/* Page content link color */
#page a:hover {
    background-image: linear-gradient(to right,currentColor 100%,currentColor 0) !important;
    color: red;
}

 

Used this code for the same purpose mentioned above! Thanks a lot! However, the change affects the buttons too. Additionally, it affects the "back to top" as well. Looking for a way to fix this Highly appreciate your help! Thanks a ton!
