I found the easy way to change the font color of a link. After inserting your link and attempting to change the color you may be unsucessful. Go into the html and directly at the end of the text portion of the link there is an ending tag < /A > ... ALL you have to do is add the font tag of < /font > directly before the ending tag then go back and change the color of the link... it should work... remember not to have any spaces in your font tag

Hi Miguel

To get rid of the underline try this code:

<!--<a style="text-decoration:none" href="YOUR LINK URL">TEXT GOES HERE</a>-->

Take out the <!-- and -->

on my template and I believe it's different for each template, it show's it's underlined in the sitebuilder but NOT on the actual published site. Littleus is always giving the hardway out. Noone's going to want to always have to remember that for every link... there could be thousands of links on someone's page... that's too time consuming... although I don't have the time right now... what needs to be done is to find out with tag refers to the underline and delete it for each of your links.

Sorry littleus, had a long day, been very busy, and it is only my opinion... I believe there is always the "easiest" way to do something and I try to look for that option. But I did have a point, if someone has a thousand links to format... that is going to be very time consuming. In the html there is usually always a tag or two that represents a particular type of format, learn what they are and formatting will be easy. I.E. TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in; Margin: 0.0in 0.0in 0.0in; Line-Height: 150%, etc... then you can fix them yourself without having to remember the entire line... <!--</A>--> is the ending tag and <!--</font>--> is the font tag... if the font tag is not present you probably won't be able to apply your own formatting, adding this tag directly to the left of the ending tag will probably allow you to use your own formatting. If you changed the color of your link before adding the font tag and it didn't work then you add the font tag, it won't automatically be changed to the color you already selected, after adding the font tag you'll need to go back and apply the formatting you wish to use.

I believe it will be something like <!--<U>--> minus the <!-- and -->

What if your link is not using a an html? I have a text box with wording that I am using to link to another page on the site. When I originially set up the website I was able to change the font color on these text boxes I was using and now I can't seem to do that. It keeps the text grey even though I specifically want it to be white? Any help please?

Hi tritons.webmaster,

The color of your links is set by the style, but you can change the color of each link individually using the Text Editing Toolbar; here is how:

1. Create the link in a Text Widget using the Link button on your Text Editing Toolbar.
2. Highlight your link and change the color using the "Font Color" option on your Text Editing Toolbar to choose a different color.

You will need to repeat these steps for each link you add to your site.

Please note that you may not see the changed color in your Sitebuilder. You will need to use the preview page to see if the color of your links have successfully changed.
