Landscape
Unable to see links in page or post content (6 posts)

    We installed Landscape on a multi-user installation of WordPress. We really like the theme, however links within the main content region of a post or page are impossible to differentiate from the rest of the text. Are you planning to update the theme to include formatting (e.g., an underline) to differentiate links from text?

    The text "Huffington Post" in the first paragraph from the URL listed below is a link to the Huffington Post. Notice the link blends with the rest of the text unless hovered.

    Isn't there a theme options menu under appearance? There, you should be able to choose link color.
    It depends on the theme though, your theme might not be supporting it.

    The background is the only configurable color.

    You should make a child theme to modify your theme safely.

    You can try to put the following CSS code in your childe theme's style.css file:

    .entry-content a {
    color: #999;
    }

    This will give you the same color for the link in the text as in the date and author link below the post title.
    If you want it to be underlined than you should add the following instead

    .entry-content a {
    text-decoration: underline;
    color: #999;
    }
    .entry-content a:hover,
    .entry-content a:active {
    text-decoration: underline;
    }

    You can change the color by changing #999 to any other hex color code.

    Thanks for the advice; we've considered that but would prefer to not manage a child theme if it can be avoided, especially when this feels more like a bug than a design choice. Your help is appreciated but we were hoping to hear from the theme author about why he made this choice.

    This thread is quite old at this point, but I thought I'd add my voice here. This seems like a really odd choice, and while I could create a child theme, it really does seem like an odd choice on the part of designers. Would keep the theme if this got a fix.
