Customizing hover effects on links for headings - 7.1

Go to solution Solved by tuanphan,

Hi all. I'm using this code on 7.1 to achieve a green italicized hover effect on my headings. 

h1 a:hover {
    font-style: italic;
    color: #4ACA54 !important;

Right now, only the italicized portion works. The problem is likely stemming from me changing each of the word of the headings to have separate, individual colors (which I can only assume is overwriting the fluid engine site styles in CSS somewhere?). My hunch is that when I changed those heading colors, it's overwriting my code above. That being said, my skill level with CSS is largely copying and pasting. So I could be wrong! 

Appreciate any insight folks have in advance!

Thank you so much tuanphan! That worked perfectly on the home page.

One last question: I have the same problem on other pages, which is evident on the "featured work" page--those headings are overlayed in black, but I want them to change when hovered to the same green. If I wanted to change all links across the site, besides navigation, do you know what I should plug in? 

Really appreciate you checking back in on this!

Hey tuanphan, 

Basically I'd like all links to hover green (similarly to what you helped with above) EXCEPT for the nav menu. 


Use this code

#page a:hover {
    font-style: italic;
#page a:hover span {
    color: #4ACA54 !important;
