Hello everyone,

Hello everyone,

I am trying to make a navigation bar. I want the buttons to be image hyperlinks that change opacity on hover and click. This is how I am doing it:

	.jw-button a:link,
	.jw-button a:visited
		border: 2px dotted orange;	
		opacity: 0.6;
		overflow: hidden;
	.jw-button a:hover,
	.jw-button a:active
		border: 2px dotted yellow;	
		text-decoration: none; /* to remove the little line */
		opacity: 0.95;
		overflow: hidden;
	<div class="jw-button">

		alt="instagram" width="30px" height="30px" />

However, as you can see the results at: www.jasonwangart.com , the resulting divs (at top of page navigation bar, in the orange dotted lines) that contain the image hyperlinks do not expand to fit the image hyperlinks. I have put "display: inline-block;" in the code, but the divs still are not expanding.

Do you know why this is?

Thank you,

Hi Jasonxweb, instead of

Hi Jasonxweb,

instead of adding the css code to .jw-button a:link
try adding the following code to a img

So border: 3px dotted orange; should be added to a img instead of .jw-button a:link

Maybe even better to give these img a certain class so not all img's are having dotted borders around them.
