Removing underline in links for Blogroll

  1. Hi,

    I'd really like to get rid of the standard underlines for my Blogroll, etc. as they get in the way of legibility. Ideally, it would be great to either: 1) have the underline show only on rollover; 2) have no underline, just the color shift for rollover. (And yes, I've pimped out humble Thematic with hot magenta and aqua rollover states cuz in a shameless pandering to current vogue color schemes. ;-) )

    I don't really know how to code CSS or PHP. But, I've been using Firebug to identify code and Dreamweaver to edit it. This has been a fairly effective method, so far. Also, I'm not following prescribed method for child themes, in that I've copied the original theme in whole and have made edits to this default.css file. Not sure if that adds any additional complications. I couldn't get my brain wrapped around the child-theme scenario, so went this way.

    Here's the link to my hidden staged area: http://dev.organicmultiplicity.org

    Any help making this little detail is greatly appreciated.

    hello fellow thematican

    you use

    text-decoration:none

    for any links.

    if your using firebug then your already thinking like a pro :)

    use

    text-decoration:underline

    for exactly that, an underline.

    so for example:

    a{
        color:#333;
        text-decoration:none
    }
    
    a:hover{
        color:#333;
        text-decoration:underline
    }

    will give you no underline except on hover.
