No one can see the links I insert into posts because they are not visible unless you hover the mouse over them. Then the text is underlined. How do I change it so the text is another color without having to hover the mouse over it? The blog I need help with is coolrevolution.net.

March 7, 2013 at 7:41 pm #1175450 lucie13Member Don’t have custom CSS, but willing to get it. March 7, 2013 at 7:52 pm #1175453 paulvantuylMember If you get the Custom Design upgrade, you can edit Colors for links or you can customize the CSS for the links. March 7, 2013 at 8:04 pm #1175463 raincoasterMember You could manually code the text to be a different colour, but the problem with that is if you change themes later you’ll manually have to edit each link code. March 7, 2013 at 8:04 pm #1175464 1tessModerator Emeritus @lucie13 You can change the link color in posts, and especially since it looks as if you don’t use lots and lots of them it is not difficult: Highlight your link text. Choose a color. Keep the link text highlighted. Click to add your link. Code will look like this in the text editor: <a href="http://LINK_URL"><span style="color:#red;">LINK_TEXT</span></a> You’d need the CSS upgrade to change link text color in most widgets. March 7, 2013 at 8:32 pm #1175479 lucie13Member I can’t change the code for individual links. I need to do an overall change. There is not an option under Colors, so I guess I’d have to do something with CSS customization. Author Posts The topic ‘Don't want mouseover hyperlinks’ is closed to new replies.
