I am working on desertpipes1.com in Agility, and have some green color as the default link color. It was the color assigned when I started, and I don't want it.

This is the first time I'm working with Complementary colors rather than Select all your own colors, so I'm guessing this might have assigned it?

I've changed the Typical Link Styles to blues, I've changed the Main Menu and Footer Menu styles to blues, and I still have that green color. It is not, and never was, in my color scheme. Where did I miss that I should have changed it?

Thanks,
Marcy

I just noticed I'm a Jedi. What does that mean?

Have you tried saving Skin Design a second time?  The two greens are used extensively in the CSS which leads me to believe that they they are in fact in your color scheme.

Rick,

I have saved the Skin Design 4 times since I started this website last week. I did play with which color scheme to use, don't know if that assigned a color although I don't know how it could.

I'm attaching screen shots of my color scheme, typical link style, and custom css (to show it is not there). Maybe that will hold an answer?

Thanks,

Marcy

Wow - there MUST be some sort of caching going on there. Your CSS file is showing the green even though Skin Design is showing the blue.  This is not a browser cache problem so it must be a server or proxy based caching.

There is one slight possibility.  Try checking the "set or adjust your own colors" checkbox and save the color settings again.

I actually wondered about that since this is the first time I have not used set or adjust your own colors.

 

That seems to have worked - now the blues are there. I guess Complimentary decided I needed green as well. 🙂

 

Thanks,

Marcy

So that is a glitch on my side that I haven't noticed before.  I'm glad it's working now.

Maybe. I did try several of the color options before I settled on Complimentary so it might have been something I did. You're the expert - I'll leave it to you now since I'm not sure if it was you or me. I'm glad it's working too. Thanks.
