CSS Links

CSS Links: Links are made using <a> </a> or anchor tag to connect to other pages in HTML. The link is most commonly used in navigation. In this article, we are going to learn about CSS links and its types with examples.

Types of CSS Links

Generally, In CSS there is a link to four conditions. Namely

  • Normal Condition of link
  • Visited Condition of link
  • Hover Condition of link
  • Active condition of a link

Normal Condition of Link

The way in which a link is displayed for the first time, it is the general condition of that link. In order to create a style, the link will be written in

Normal Condition of Link Syntax

a: style sheet: link {colour: #090;}.

Visited Condition of Link

If a link is used one or more times and the mouse is not placed on the link, then the link is displayed as the visited status of that link. In this case, the link will look like how to style its style to be written in a:

Visited Condition of Link Example

a: visited {colour: # 303}.

Hover Condition of Link

Whether or not a link is used, if the mouse is placed on the link, the link is displayed as the Hobo status of that link. In this case, the link will be displayed in the style sheet to create its style:

Hover Condition of Link Example

a: hover {background: #639}.

Active condition of the Link

When the link is active, ie how the link is displayed in the click of a mouse, it is the active state of the link. In this case, the link will be displayed in the style sheet to create the style of it:

Active condition of the Link Example

The linking behavior can be changed in four conditions. And this logic is more used in the navigation bar.
