CSS Issue WordPress


I'm having trouble formatting a page. Every time I create links to certain pages, when I go to view the page there is a line through the link. The links are not broken; they work just fine. I saw this in the page source, but I have no idea what's generating it:

<style type="text/css">.broken_link, a.broken_link {
text-decoration: line-through;

Here is the page in question:

I've contacted the theme developer, but he is slow to respond and the client wants this fixed stat.

Navjot Singh answers:

Do you have Broken Link Checker Plugin installed? Seems to be the one generating this style.

That was absolutely it! *Facepalm*


Kailey Lampert answers:

It's likely coming from the theme's functions.php file. Can you post that (if it's long, perhaps post to and link it here)

Kailey Lampert comments:

As Navjot Singh, could also be a plugin that's been installed. Easier to check for that first before diving into the functions.php file.


Martin Pham answers:

[[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]


She Codes answers:

If you don't find it, you could overwrite the style by adding the following to your stylesheet:

.broken_link, a.broken_link {
text-decoration:none !important;
