Targeting my footer links in WordPress but result is funny

I have a navigation menu in my site's footer (http://raccoonbox.com/sitedata/). I would like to change those links to gray color (a:link) but something funny is happening.

#menu-main-menu-in-footer {
  list-style: none;
  text-decoration: none;
  display: block;
  text-align: center;

#menu-footer-menu a:link,
#menu-main-menu-in-footer a:link {
  color: #c6c5c5 !important;

This code that I have in my style.css only affects half of the links. In PC Firefox none of the links is gray, in iPhone Safari the last link is gray, in PC Chrome all but two middle links are gray.

What is happening?

Hi Konstantin,

It looks as though your visited links are not retaining the colour. If you have styled this with a:link (as an example), try using a:visited with the same styles or removing the :link altogether, e.g.

#menu-footer-menu a:link,
#menu-footer-menu a:visited


#menu-footer-menu a

Hope that helps.


Thank you! <3

No problem. Glad you got it sorted.
