How do I change the link color in the pdf export?

I am tying to set up a pdf stylesheet and want to change the color of hyperlinks to red. I have added the code below to the stylesheet but it has no effect. How can I change the hyperlink color.

.wiki-content a, .wiki-content a:link, .wiki-content a:visited, .wiki-content a:focus, .wiki-content a:hover, .wiki-content a:active {
color: #D21034!important;

Try something simpler, e.g.


a {
    color: hotpink !important;

Likely the wrapping is omitted from the PDF view.

Edit: Added the !important override for support in Confluence Cloud PDF exports

Thanks David - this worked.

Great. If it worked, mark it as answered ;)

I couldn't get the colour to change to anything other than the default black. I was able to add some text decoration to at least underline the hyperlinks though:

a {
text-decoration: underline;

I second this notion (using Confluence cloud edition).

The following has no effect:

    color: hotpink;

but this does have an effect:

a {
text-decoration: underline;

It feels like a Confluence bug in the interpretation of the CSS style sheet and/or that color specifically is overruled somewhere later in the process.

It looks indeed like the color is set somewhere else, but adding `!important` will make the declaration stick. In other words, this works:

a {
color: hotpink !important;
