Dotted Box around Links (Sela Theme)

    Hi, I’m using WordPress free and am currently using the Sela theme.

    On the demo of the site, when I clicked on links or buttons, I didn’t see any dotted box around the link. However, when I activated the theme on my website and clicked on links in the nav bar and the social media menu, I keep seeing the dotted boxes.

    I know this can be done through custom css but as I’m using the free version of WordPress, I’m not able to access the CSS customizer. Is there a way to resolve this?

    This is the link to my blog in case anyone needs it. Thanks in advance!

    Hi there,

    The dotted boxes you see are the link styles for the a:visited state and the a:active state.

    The only way to change or remove those styles is to use custom CSS, but that will require the Premium or Business plan.



    Hmm okay. I was just confused because the demo of the theme didn’t have it and was wondering if I had messed up the css somehow. Thanks!


    You’re welcome!

    Yes, I noticed that in my browser. I assume the default style in your browser (I use Firefox) is different from the default style in the demo window. Anyway, I’m glad this brought some clarity :-)
