Edit: I have to correct - My edits now took effect, when I dited my chosen theme's CSS --Tmarian (talk) 12:57, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi shoutwiki community! I'm trying to edit my wikis CSS - but just some of my edits take effect. Are there restrictions on what admins are alowed to edit in their wiki's css?

The only tings that worked so far are:

body{background-image:none; color: #ffffff}


#siteNotice { margin-top: 95px; margin-bottom: 1em;}

all these edits didn't work:

 .mw-body a:link { color: #000000; text-decoration: underline;  } /* normal unvisited links */
 .mw-body a:link:visited { color: #000000; text-decoration: line-through;  } /* visited links */
 .mw-body a:link:active { color: #000000; text-decoration: underline; } /* active links */
 .mw-body { color: #000000; text-decoration: underline;  } /* new links */
 .mw-body a:link.interwiki { color: #000000; text-decoration: underline; } /* interwiki links */
 .mw-body a:link.external { color: #000000; text-decoration: underline; } /* external links */
 .mw-body a:link.stub { color: #000000; text-decoration: line-through; } /* hovered links */
 .mw-body a:link {color: #000000; text-decoration: underline;}
 .mw-body a:visited {color: #000000; text-decoration: line-through;}
 .mw-body a:hover {color: #000000; text-decoration: line-through;}
 .mw-body a:active {color: #000000; text-decoration: underline;} /*what does active link mean? ... maybe change to line-through */
 .mw-body {color: #000000; text-decoration: underline;}
 .mw-body {color: #000000; text-decoration: line-through;}
 .mw-body a.external {color: #000000; text-decoration: underline;}
 .mw-body a.external:visited {color: #000000; text-decoration: line-through;}

...any suggestions / why is that? --Tmarian (talk) 12:11, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Tmarian, have you tried purging your cache? Would you mind posting a link to your wiki (if it's private, please send it to staff through a support message so we can investigate if cache is not the problem) --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 12:14, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
wow ... looks like I was wrong - my edits in Monobook.css just came to effect. the wiki is thanks anyway! --Tmarian (talk) 12:34, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
