    Forum URLs

    Post by Dashe on Tue Aug 09, 2011 7:48 pm

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm finding it a bit hard to distinguish a URL from normal text when the code's set around text, like this phrase here is. Is there any way for Adrian or someone else with admin privileges to alter the color of un-clicked and previously-clicked URLs while nobody's mousing over them? That way, those of us who prefer to nest URLs in text to make it look neater don't accidentally wind up making them too hard for people expecting huge links to find.

    I concur. I've been having to underline all my urls to help distinguish them.

    The color changes just slightly, which doesn't show up too well on monitors. I'll be underlining them from now on.

    Meh... I completely understand Dashe. Ever since I first previewed the urls, they looked terrible, especially if you hide them in text.

    Here's the code I use for anybody who wants to try it:

    Code:
    [url=http://legends-station.com][u][color=blue]The Megaman Legends Station[/color][/u][/url]

    Which makes it come out looking like this: The Megaman Legends Station

    Nifty, right? Of course, it is rather annoying having to manually type in the code, It'd definitely be nice if Adrian can tweak the default coloring of links.

    It should be in the administration tab, assuming you have one. Whatever allowed you to change the forum skin and add a custom background, it's probably somewhere nearby.

    Thanks Adrian2040. The links really do stand out now ever since the forums had a makeover.

    This problem is now (hopefully) fixed.
