How do I change the color of my links?

Post by Pablo » Sat Jul 09, 2005 6:08 pm

By default all hyperlinks in your webpage use the default HTML link colors (link:blue, visited:purple, active: red, hover:blue).

Web Builder gives you the option to customize the way hyperlinks will be displayed in the browser by introducing the Hyperlink Style Sheet Editor.

1. Select Format|Styles|Hyperlink Styles from the menubar
2. Click Add to add a new hyperlink style.
3. Customize the colors of the hyperlink by clicking on the appropriate link. A hyperlink has four states (linked, visited, active and hover) so you may have to change the color for all 4 states.
4. Give the style a nice name like 'cool_link'
3. Click OK to save.
4. Select a link and change the Style from the dropdown list to 'cool_link
5. Publish or preview the page to view the effect.

Note: the link styles become active when you publish or preview your page. Web Builder will always show links in blue.
