Link Color? (4 posts)

    Hello.

    On my blog, where my entries are, I have several links to sites and such... but they are so hard to distinguish from normal text since it is the exact same color as normal text without a link.

    here is my blog:

    all I want to do is for the main entries -- to make any links blue or purple, or anything that distinguishes them. where can I change the code?

    thanks.

    It should be in the css file for the template you're using.

    Surely this isn't all you're asking, I feel like I'm missing something.

    what would the exact code look like?

    Far down in your stylesheet style.css under Typography general, you have the style rules for the anchors ( links ):
    a {
    color: #444444;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    a:hover {
    color: #990000;
    text-decoration: underline;
    }

    top a {
    border: 0;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    You can change the colors to whatever you want.
    Try to change the first rule to
    a {
    color: #0000ff;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    Which will make them blue, both in your posts and in your sidebar.
    Then try out some other colors.

    The second rule is for when the user hovers over the link.
    The third is for links in your top section, but the are already standard blue.
