issue with the color of the title of a sharepoint (MOSS 2007) list item. RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have a sharepoint list with about 150 items, and about 5 of them have a different color title than the rest. i don't think it's a hyperlink issue, because every item has been clicked on, and they don't change from red to blue like these 5. every item has been edited several times, so i don't think that's it either. i can't find any difference between these 5 items and the rest; any idea as to why only certain list items would have a different color title?

  • Hi, as Lhan suggested just check with IE Developer tool and check which class is overriding for those five links and you can override the same class with the blue color.

  • Hi,

    What if you open this in different browser ? i.e. Firefox, Chrome

  • I'd love to know, but I'm not allowed to use other browsers.

  • Not even for a single test? Anyway, who is to know? We're not suggesting you change browsers permanently just enough to identify if this problem is browser-related.

    Actually have you said here which browser your are allowed to use? I.e which browser has the problem. If it's a version of IE, then you could try a different version of IE (there are enough versions out there) and still not break this rule. [On a different PC if necessary to go to a back version of IE]

  • don't even have the ability to download a different browser.  i did, however, find a co-worker at home with VPN access.  he tried on chrome and said that there were no blue links; everything was red.  suggests some setting in IE?

  • Hi paultru:

     

    It’s a very strange issue, i can’t reproduce it,it looks like a style issue. is it a customized list?

    If is a customized list, you can try to use the default list shows the data to see whether there is the same issue.

    If it still can’t be solved, you can use the IE Developer Tools to view the page source code.Compare the issue fields with the normal fields,and find any differences.

    Then you can use javascript (recommended jquery) to fix it.

  • thanks, I'm not a programmer, but i opened developer tool, and i saw this on the console tab:

    SEC7115: :visited and :link styles can only differ by color. Some styles were not applied to :visited.

  • I figured it out...it only changes if I access the list item by clicking a link from a Nintex workflow email.  Odd.
