How to Change Link Color in Elementor
Good news is that Elementor 2.9 now has an option to globally set link colors. The bad news is that you now can’t set link color just for particular block of text. In this tutorial however, I show you a workaround on this on top of using the new Elementor feature to set link colors.
Step 1. Go to Theme Style
To access “Theme Style” begin by clicking on the icon on the top left corner of the editor.
Now click on “Theme Style”
Step 2. Open Typography
Under Theme Style settings, open Typography tab to see settings under this option
Step 3. Set Link colors
Under Typography scroll to Link section..
- Click on “Normal” to set normal link colors and fonts
- Then click on “Hover” to set link color on mouse hover.
You should now see “Link Color” and “Link Hover Color” options
Good news is that you can now set link colors globally
Unlike before, now these settings affect your entire site so you don’t have to do this over and over again.
These settings override your theme settings which is great for theming.
Challenge is when you want to change link color just for one block of text
Sad part is that Elementor has removed the ability to set link colors under sections and columns.
Meaning that should you want to have a different color for just a particular block of text, this is not possible anymore – something I think Elementor should address.
Workaround for changing link color for just one block
The solution lies within the classic text editor styling options. So when you want to override Elementor’s global link color, you’ll have to use Text Editor’s color options to achieve this.
