Hi
I'm just wondering if someone can help me - i have just created a spry menu bar, but would like the text (links) to change colour (#EE9ABC) when the cursor is hovering on it...can someone explain to me how to do this please? I have included my current spry coding if that helps...

Thanking you in advance.

Spry menubars are set up to do this using style rules such as ul.MenuBarVertical a:hover

You appear to have somehow deleted a few style rule names from you style sheet

Hi DW course.
Yeh i did - i deleted a section where it was making the 'links' have a blue background and white text on hover.


Would it be possible to show me the correct coding (wording) i would use to add it back in (and where abouts to add it) so that it just changes to colour #EE9ABC on hover?

Your help is very much appreciated!

you need to replace that section , then you can edit the hover colour how you want. open a new instance of it and copy and paste the relevant, section. or start again.
