As you will see from this screencap: https://i.imgur.com/Quv2EUY.png – I have made my content links blue, and the hover red, and it’s fine on the page in this image. I put it like this in both the ‘body’ and ‘content’ options.
All the pages are using BB inc the ones that ARE correct. And no, I haven’t made any direct changes, that’s the point. I even did a test link further down the page (since deleted) to see what the inherited link colour would be, and it was the same, i.e. black, and no hover colour.
