Hi. I just noticed that whenever I have an “Email Me” link within the body content, it is in a red box. In theory, I like how this draws attention to EMAIL and could be a good call to action, however–the box color is almost the same color as the link color and is illegible. I have experimented with changing the link and hover colors to no avail. This is a recent issue, as I don’t recall ever seeing this happen before. I’m using safari. You can see this issue at the bottom of this page on my site: http://sneedesign.com/chris-snee-caricature-art/
Ideally, I’d like to keep the call to action aspect of the link and keep the box– but I need to know how to make the link text within the box (only in the Email Me instances) white or another legible color. If that isn’t an option, how do I just get rid of the box and return to the simple “Email Me” link?????
I’m not sure what you mean. The link only has one ‘email me’ link that I can see and it just shows up as a normal link for me:
Is this only happening on Safari? If so, what version? Perhaps there was a new fliter for Safari that adds more attention to any link that is a mailto: url or something like that.
