View Full Version : URL color

You should make the color of URL's blue instead of black so they stand out. Otherwise they just look like underlined text in a post.

Exactly. People don't know things are links.
I noticed that on the tshirt thread how people just had no idea there's a link to the shirts for sale on the front page.
And I suggest blue because blue has been the standard URL color.

^^well, I changed the link in the t-shirt order thread to blue for you. It looks real good and pops out at you nicely. With a little fudgin around I may(or may not) be able to get it to do your signiture as well. still workin on it.
To make every link pop up in a different color every time someone makes one, it will be either a everytime type of thing or something jon will have to do.

I also tried to highlight the links in your sig, but they just would not go. Let me know what you think.

I'm thinking that was the wrong setting because it didn't change just URLs, but all internal hyper links too.
I'll have to look for the right setting.
In the mean time feel free to change it back to black or gray or something.

I looked no luck

Looks like it takes some customization of the CSS or a plug-in.
Could at least go with a dark gray so hyperlinks don't exactly match the black text. That would at least let them stand out a little.

thank goodness you guys switched back..blue text on red does not look good at all
12-29-2009, 06:30 PM

12-29-2009, 09:23 PM
it looked like shit... i am going to leave it the way it is

I still think at least make it dark gray or something other than black so URLs stand out a little bit in threads. At least it won't exactly match.
01-05-2010, 08:46 PM
just change you text color like i did. it won't turn prple, but it still stands out

I don't want to have to do that for every link I put into a post.
Not to mention, other people won't do it for every link they put into posts.
So instead of people clicking a link that will answer their question, they just ask the question even though the answer is just a click away.
