Change color of link on mouse over


I am currently having trouble trying to get my applications link to change color when I move my mouse over the link. So if possible could someone please let me know if this is possible and if so could you give me a brief and easy to understand tutorial on how to do this as I have been searching the Internet for hours and still haven’t found anything that work, so any help would be appreciated.


You need to use the
:hover selector

So it would look like this then?

color: #000000;

Because that doesn’t work neither does:


As all that does is edit the background of the text, I have tried just color or font-color and neither works all I want is so that when the mouse moves over the link it changes to another color besides blue as it is currently to hard to make out on the background and I can’t change the background color. Any help would be appreciated.

I think you almost got it, try

.v-link a:hover span{
    color: black;
