Color coding is not working

  1. Hi,

    My color coding is not working well right now. In fact, I can't seem to get html to work at all. Please someone take a look and tell me where exactly i am going wrong or if I need to tweak some setting before doing anything.

    Thank you

    The html is at this link below. As you can see, instead of the html taking effect, it simply shows up as part of the text though I am sure I am getting it right.

    The blog I need help with is wizardfiction.wordpress.com.

  2. First of all, you pasted the HTML in the Visual editor. Code is used in the (so-called) Text editor.
    Second, the tags you used are deprecated.
    Third, to change the color of a link you don't enclose it in other tags, you add the appropriate piece of code in the opening link tag. See this post of mine:

  3. Thank you. It seems to be working well now. I did not realize that I was in visual editor but if you had not linked me to where you explained how to color links, I still would have had problems so thank you.
