Wow I am a little overwhelmed and still stuck from what Wickham said I need to do etc for having different hyperlink attributes for areas in my new website I am doing.
Please let me explain myself another way and maybe I can get to grips with it and get this solved for me In short I am only just learning css and dreamweaver but I have no idea how to write ANY css code etc.
If you or someone can maybe just explain how to go about and select the appropriate css set 'new rules' and what I should do and logical choosing the appropriate selector type when the menu box open i.e. do I select class, tag or i.d settings ? for the following 3 things I want to have happen and trying to figure out regarding hyperlinks attributes in different areas for my website
1) In the content area where all the typical writing goes...... ALL these such hyperlinks I may have within the content these can all be set to the same attributes i.e. say all in a blue and turn to orange and underlined when hovered over and once you have visited that hyperlink it stays on say purple.
So question ONE is How would you go about setting this up and defining this please?
Because I have no idea how to write code what do I need to do select the appropriate css set new rules and selector type i.e. class, tag or i.d settings
Next scenario 2) Now here is where I am stuck!
I am placing a menu on the LEFT of my website with hyper links to pages etc, so, I'll call this "LEFT MENU"..... and I want these links to maybe not have the same attributes as for the above content.
Instead this ?LEFT MENU in this case all the hyper links ( say 7 of them) are starting off as a WHITE font and are UNDERLINED and then, when hovered over change to red and once visited stay on purple.
Again; How would you go about setting this up Because I have no idea how to write code what do I need to do select the appropriate css set new rules and selector type i.e. class, tag or i.d settings
*Please NOTE Though* (the hyperlinks by the way for the LEFT MENU here been placed in a colored box i.e. a div or probably a 1 column and 1 row table that has say a blue background . I thought I would mention this use of a table in case you need to bare in mind for the CSS rules?)
Then lastly scenario 3) a main menu and just underneath another, ?sub menu? (placed in a two cell table or a div)
I will have a menu in the Header area and let?s call this ?MAIN Menu ?and let?s say there will be required 5 hyperlinks to take the reader off to other areas in the website . And on this ?MAIN Menu? I want those attributes for the hyperlinks, to maybe APPLY the Same as the attribute for any hyperlinks as placed in the Content Area (described as in number 1 above).
How would you go about setting this up and defining this please?
*Again NOTE * (the hyperlinks for the MAIN MENU here have been placed in a colored box i.e. a div or probably more LIKELY I will do a 1 column and a 2 row table ? that has a shaded background thought I would mention this use of Table to bare in mind for the CSS rules?)
And lastly?. I may have in this 2 row table another menu (below the main menu ) and lets call this ?SUB menu? and here the hyperlink attributes maybe the same as for ONLY the LEFT menu above as mentioned.
*Again NOTE * (the hyperlinks for the Man and sub MENU here have say been placed in a colored box i.e. a div or probably a 1 column and 2 row table that has a shaded background thought I would mention this to bare in mind for the CSS rules?)
So hoping you can be patient with me !! And explain how to logically simply do this without me needing to write code as I was hoping it is merely knowing how to specifically go about applyng/select the right CSS rules and apply the right Selector tags?
