Underline links in "Headlines"

    Hi All –

    Using the “Headlines” template.

    Need to have links stand out rather than look simply like text with a color that’s so close to the standard text that you can’t tell it’s a link until you mouse over it.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.


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



    Helo there,
    Your theme is a premium theme and we Volunteers answering questions on this forum have no knowledge of how they are designed to operate, and no access to the themes, so posting to this forum is not likely to be productive. When you purchased your premium theme what came with that purchase was support directly from the theme designer. When you purchased the custom design upgrade you also purchased Staff support. Please click this link and post to that forum for theme support. Premium Themes Forum link.

    Give this a try which puts a bottom border on them just like when they are hovered.

    .entry a:link, .widget a:link {
    border-bottom: 1px dotted;


    Yep – that worked! Just what I was looking for. Thanks.

    And timetheif, I do know my theme is a premium theme. The thing is that I bought the CSS upgrade, and I clicked the “link” on that page to ask the question just like it says. Perhaps WordPress should put another link on that page that says, “If you have a question about a premium theme, click here for support.”

    Just a thought…


    For CSS questions, we can look at your site using the Firebug add-on for Firefox and help, and we can help with standard wordpress features. For any questions regarding specific features or how something works with a premium theme, those would need to be asked in the premium support forum.



    Hi there, I’m a true beginner with WordPress and I was wondering where I would enter the code you mentioned in your reply from 10/27 at 8:24PM? I’m trying to get my links underlined all the time, not just when hovering. Thanks! -adam


    First you would need to have the Custom Design Upgrade. You would then go to appearance > custom design > CSS in your dashboard, clear out all the informational text in the edit window and paste that code in there.

    You can try it out though if you do not have the upgrade by using the preview button on the CSS editing page. Sometimes you might have to force refresh the preview page if the change does not show up.

    Also know that CSS is theme specific and this solution was for the Premium Headlines theme. If you have a different theme, then the solution would most certainly be different.
