How do I get a link to ignore hover on mouseover?

Tags: html,css

Problem :

Currently I have my site set up so that links have an underline on mouseover. How do I get it so that some links ignore this?

My code:

a:hover { 
border-bottom: solid #000 2px !important;}

The HTML that I don't want to have this applied to it:

<div class="banner">
<h1><a href="home.html" class="titleLink">Brian Funderburke Photography &amp; Design</a></h1>

I assume maybe I apply text-decoration: none to my h1, but the issue is selecting my h1 in css. None of my different attempts were working so I think I was writing the selector wrong. How would I write a selector in this situation?

Solution :

First, remove !important. It is unnecessary and makes things more difficult than they need to be.

Then, assuming .titleLink is your "don't put hover effect on this" class, just do...

a.titleLink:hover {
    border-bottom: none;
