Hide custom hover state for social icons in footer

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://onh.community

Hello! I'm using this custom CSS to create a hover state for the links in my header and mobile menu, but the hover state is now also showing up for the social links in my footer which I'd like to remove.

Any suggestions for how to do so? Thanks!


nav a:hover {
    background-size: 100% 1.5px !important;

nav a {
  padding-bottom: 6px;
  overflow: visible !important;
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
    background-image: linear-gradient(to right,currentColor 100%,currentColor 0) !important;
    background-size: 0% 0.5px !important;
    background-position: 0% 100% !important;
    white-space: initial;
transition: all ease-in-out 500ms !important;
-ms-transition: all ease-in-out 500ms !important;
-moz-transition: all ease-in-out 500ms !important;
-webkit-transition: all ease-in-out 500ms !important;

.header-menu-nav-item a {
    display: inline-block;

//End navigation underscore//

The issue is because the nav elements you are targeting are used in the header and in the footer for the social icons.

Replace (make a copy somewhere) your code with the following.

.header-nav-wrapper a, /* desktop */
.header-menu-nav-item a /* mobile */


    background-image : linear-gradient( to right, currentColor 100%, currentColor 0 );
    background-position : 0% 100%;
    background-repeat : no-repeat;
    background-size : 0% .5px;
    overflow : visible;
    padding-bottom : 6px;

    -ms-transition : all ease-in-out 500ms;
    -moz-transition : all ease-in-out 500ms;
    -webkit-transition : all ease-in-out 500ms;
    transition : all ease-in-out 500ms;
    white-space : initial;

.header-nav-wrapper a:hover, /* desktop */
.header-menu-nav-item a:hover /* mobile */

    background-size : 100% 1px;

.header-menu-nav-item a /* mobile */

    display : inline-block;

Let us know how it goes.
