Change Color of any and all links (6 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    So I just switched themes on one of my sites, and in the process I noticed that since my old theme was darker in color and my new theme has a white background on blog posts, that some of my text that was white to stand out now was invisible against the white background. So I went through and started changing those pieces of text on those blog posts from white to black so they'd be visible again... And then I realized... SOME of those lines of texts that I made black were links. Now they're indistinguishable from the rest of the text.

    So my question is, is there some kind of plugin that would automatically take any text that's a link and change it's color or give it some kind of cool glow effect or something, anything to make it stand out without me having to go back over and change the color of every link?

    Also, if there's NOT some kind of plugin that does that, what would the "default" color be to change it back to so it looks like a normal link (one color if you've never clicked on it before, color changes if you have... like on any other website).

    My site is currently on maintenance mode so I can't show you it, but if someone needs to see it I'll take it off maintenance temporarily.

    What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    It's called Chromatic from GraphPaperPress.com

    You know what, within minutes after posting this, I started searching and I figured out how to make links at least appear underlined by changing one line in the style.css file.

    It would still be nice to change the color too, but if not the underlined will work for now.

    I'm sorry but as you appear to be using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developer/vendor. We do not have access to, nor do we support, commercial products here.
    Try http://graphpaperpress.com/support/

    Thanks yea I e-mailed them too so I'll wait to hear back.

    I'm sorry but I was under the impression that the WordPress.org support forum was for any and all wordpress related issues. Granted if it's a specifically theme related issue, people may not be able to help, but I thought people ask about help for any kind of wordpress site, with any theme, and any plugins, etc etc.

    Sorry but the wordpress.org support forums are meant for the core application, themes and plugins that are distributed on wordpress.org. We do not support themes or plugins downloaded from elsewhere.
