  • Automatically having links bold and colored.

    Hello.

    Whenever someone posts a link, it's just plain and sometimes hard to notice. I'd like the links to be automatically bolded and have this color = #044900.

    I know this can be done, as I have seen it on another vB forum, which uses 2.2.6. I have 2.3.2.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

          I know what you're talking about. My Site Technician made ALL the links green and bolded, which I don't really care for too much. He's doing a good job with the work he's putting in, and I appreciate that.

          Check this thread out. My link was bolded and colored, and the rest of the links on the page are not affected.

          Does anything know how to do this?

                I have. They are being unreceptive and aren't respond to my thread.

                        this should go in the CSS header of your posts, I think

                        A:link {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}
                        A:visited {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}
                        A:hover {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}
                        A:active {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}

                        If you want different styled links on the same page, do this:

                        .blarg A:link {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}
                        .blarg A:visited {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}
                        .blarg A:hover {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}
                        .blarg A:active {color: whatever; text-decoration: whatever; font-weight: bold;}

                        and then put

                        class="blarg"

                        somewhere in your link code (i.e. <a href="wherever" class="blarg">)

                        obviously, "whatever" and "wherever" shoudl be replaced by actual values. accepted stuff for text-decoration is none, underline, overline, line-through, and any combination of the last three. colours... well, I'm sure you know how to use that :P

                          I don't mean to question you, but how confident are you that the code works?

                              Quite. I use something similar on my own site in several style sets, although I don't use the bolding bit.

                              To make it affect bbcode links, you'd have to make the post table fall whatever custom class you wanted, which you'd do by editing the postbit template. You'd probably have to end up editing the privatemessage template and announcementbit templates as well.
