Customizing font color on the Children Display Macro in Confluence

Hi there,

I'm trying to customize the color of the links that are coming from the Children Display Macro. I've tried enclosing it in divs, changing styling to h5 and adding css on h5 tags, I've tried inline CSS as well and nothing has been working. Looking at the source, logically it should work since the entire html code of the children display macro is wrapped on a div with css styles but it doesn't seem to apply it to the font.

Any help would be great!

This widget could not be displayed.

It does apply but is overwritten by some other styles that are higher in the CSS hierarchy.

Try to add more classes to increase the position in the hierarchy, something like this:

.YOUR_THEME_CLASS .wiki-content .YOUR_DIV_CLASS li a {
color: red;
