macroLink - font colour

Post by Blakey »

Hello all,

I have a frame which has a macroLink or three on it. All these links are displayed in the default blue colour. This happens to be hard to read on some of the backgrounds I'm displaying the links on. Is there a way to change the colour of the link so-displayed?

Cheers!

Code: Select all

<span style='color:red'><a href="http://forums.rptools.net/posting.php?mode=reply&f=20&t=15381">text</a></span>

Just surround it with a span tag and set the style.

The 'style' attribute also applies to many other tags, not just <span>, so you can also apply it directly to the <a> tag:

Code: Select all

<a href="http://forums.rptools.net/posting.php?mode=reply&f=20&t=15381" style='color:red'>text</a>

This is not always feasible if you are generating links using Wiki: macroLink(), but does work well with Wiki: macroLinkText(). Just a little something to keep in mind to help simplify your HTML.

You can also change macroLink colors with CSS. The CSS selector 'a' applies to them.
