    Hi there,

    I've been left stranded by my web designer and have to do something myself, but I don't have a clue now!

    I'd like to alter the text which displays when I leave my mouse hovering over my http://www.rapnews.co.uk page links when viewing in Firefox.

    Thanks, Tony.

    Right now, when hovered text turns white.
    What did you want ?

    That is text that is there to assist your readers, but it could be changed - to what though ?

    I'd love to help, but you're question isn't clear. Are you talking about the color of the links or the link structure?

    They were also trying to figure out your request since it is a web standard to have a "title" to accompany links so screen readers and others with accessibility issues can "read" your links.

    To change the link text on the TITLE (which I believe is what you are talking about), open your index.php template file within your Theme.

    Look for the following or something similar:

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    Change it to:

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Whatever you want to say here <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
