Hello Donald

You should be able to change the color of the links. You can do this by highlighting the text link and then selecting a color on your text toolbar. The color may not be reflected in your site builder but it should reflect in your preview page and published site.

I've never been able to change the color of my links in any template. They don't even show on published sites. The templates have preset colors for the links and they can't be changed. Not even if done through the html.

Mine for my template is a light gray. If I use a background such as light blue or pink, it blends in too much.

I did manage to get some links changed.. but I have to try about twenty times each link then it goes through.

Hello Donald

I am able to change the links on my page by using the text widget as highlighting the text links and then using the color selection on the text toolbar.

I've posted my testpage to show you. http://littleustest2.yolasite.com/faq

Can you please post the page where you're having trouble to make the link colors work?

yea, that's weird. I use to use that template and was unsuccessful. I wonder if I've ever tried it in firefox (the browser I believe you use?)?

I did manage to change some of my links colors but if you view the links, you will clearly see the issue with the "white" underline. The white is the color the link wouldn't change from, when I finally was able to change the link (to black because I was undecided about what color would work) the underline remained white.

http://youcanneverbetoosmart.com/prof... - view the links in the pink background.

I just tried it in firefox and in the sitebuilder the link looked blue (which because of the color of my background will make it hard to see and give me a headache) but it worked with changing the color. However, I hate using sitebuilder in firefox because of the font problem and the html problem.

With html, all lines appear on the same line making it hard to find something to edit it (I'm not the only one with this issue - ask william, he'll tell ya) and the font is not how it's suppose to look. When viewed from Internet Explorer it looks better because firefox changes up the font.

well... don't know if you ever got a look at the page or noticed it previously, but I'm about to change my link colors using firefox so they'll be normal.
