    Its very hard to identify links in forum threads/posts as it appears in the same colour as standard text.

    Perhaps something orange like the colour used in the logo would best suit?

    Hi Mike

    Just taken a quick look, the problem is that when I change the link colour it changes every single link visible on the forum to that colour eg, every link on the homepage becomes orange, any ideas how to solely specify the link colour in posts only?

    Cheers

    Damon

    huh? Well personally I think it's colour is just fine, you read the article -> you notice the link, you rollover the article, then you don't notice the link... hmm oh well, just my opinion.

    Try this:

    Admincp / Style Manager / Main CSS

    look for Normal Links CSS and Visited Links CSS etc and then change the relevant hex codes.

    As far as i understand you have an stylesheet with:

    a:link{color:blue;text-decoration:underline}
    a:hover{}

    something like this and you also do have an stylesheet for those post <div class="..."></div> entries
    you could try adding an class for links into the code:

    This is what your post looks like:
    Code:
    	
    	<td class="alt1pb" id="td_post_1244">
    			<!-- icon and title -->
    			<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0">
    <tr><td><div class="smallfont">
    				<img class="inlineimg" src="http://www.graphicdesignforums.co.uk/images/icons/icon1.gif" alt="Default" border="0" />
    				<strong>Links!</strong>
    			</div></td>
    <td><div class="smallfont" style="float:right"><a href="/feedback-help-forum/327-links.html#post1244" title="Link to this Post">permalink</a></div></td>
    </tr></table>
    			<!-- / icon and title -->
    		<br />
    		<!-- message -->
    		<div id="post_message_1244">Its very hard to identify links in forum threads/posts as it appears in the same colour as standard text.<br />
    <br />
    Perhaps something orange like the colour used in the logo would best suit?</div>
    		<!-- / message -->
    	</td>
    
    add
    a.postlink:link{color:eek:range}
    a.postlink:hover{text-decoration:underline}
    to your stylesheet

    and regarding the posts code
    look onto
    Code:
    		<!-- message -->
    		<div id="post_message_1244" class="postlink">
    Well i'm not 100% sure, but this is the approx. way i would try to figure this out.
    Hope it helps somehow.

    mmmm, tricky, at the moment it changes every single link sitewide to orange, I have added orange as a hover colour for now although this doesn't really help at a glance.

    If anybody knows exactly how to do this then let me know, don't want to tinker incase I mess it up :icon_biggrin:

    Basically that's just what i told, because those links in posts don't have any class specified, so you would have to edit the source files just to add this class="postlink" within the <div id="post_message_id">.

    Sorted, what do you think?

    Orange on all links was a bit too bright and detracted from the text within the posts.

    Alternatively, we can keep the links as they were and just have orange on roll over.

    Let me know what you prefer.

    Sweet ;) I'd say the rollover color would be neat.
