Custom CSS code not working with <a> elements

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

My site is not public yet so not sure how to make it visible but this is the problem I'm having. I had several custom buttons made that are pop-ups for our payment processor and contact forms. All the custom styles do not work when applied to an <a> element. I was able to make all the styling apply when I changed the <a> elements to a <p> element and took the href link out, so I know the code works, it just doesn't work with an <a> element and I'm not sure why.

Here's the code I was using. Like I said, when I swap out the <a> for a <p> element, remove the href, and change it accordingly in the CSS the styles then apply. 

In the <> block:

<a class=“g_button” href="https://fumcpdx.churchcenter.com/giving?open-in-church-center-modal=true">

  Give Online Now

</a>

In the custom CSS:

/* Give Button Styling */

a.g_button {

background: #D34B2A;

color: #F5F1E9;

  text-transform: Uppercase;

font-family: “Merriweather”, serif;

text-align: center;

  letter-spacing: 1.5px;

font-weight: 600;

font-size: 1.2em;

  padding:15px 50px 15px 50px;

  border: none;

  border-radius:5px;

  display: inline-block;

}

 

a.g_button:hover {

  background: #EB693B;

}

I don't know where that code is that you're showing. That's not how I have it right now. I was going back between trying different ways to get the CSS to apply so was using a "test" class, but that's not how it is now so not sure where you pulled that code.

It was the code from your page when I loaded it. It has been changed since then.

The issue remains. You need to not use smart quotes, use dumb quotes as in the example I showed.
