Hi Justin,

This can be done as a sitewide change usually by a simple code if you're on Silver If on Bronze then you will need to add some CSS to each page but not difficult.

Do I know your web-site? If you can confirm this I'll send back the code with instructions.

If it's a new site could you tell me the Style you are using please?

You're on Silver? (sorry to have to ask again)

Justin, this is the CSS that effects the link text colour for Swanky. It looks like a very old style in its markup.

.sys_txt a {
color: #xxxxxx;
text-decoration: none;
}


Replace the colour code #xxxxxx with your selection from a published web-colour chart. (You don't have to worry about web-safe colours anymore as most computers can now display millions of colours). Here's one that is easy:http://www.webmonkey.com/2010/02/colo...

When you have selected your chosen colour for your link text then add the updated CSS to your CSS over-rides and this will change any link text that has been created previously or that you will add subsequently. If you need instruction on this procedure please let me know.

I can't see any reference to blue underlining with this style, may have missed it of course or maybe you're referring to a general use of blue underlining in a number of different styles?

Justin:

The inserts are your custom panels that you have added to your site.

The dialogue of the custom panels has a facility to change the font characteristics. You will see the facility for changing the font colour and from the reference I gave you for the colour chart you can select the colours you wish for this. I don't think that there's a global command to change these retrospectively as each panel is a discrete element.

The colour code for the pink is #FF33BB
The code for the purple is:#75043D
The code for the blue: #7FB9ED and #2D76B9
