Hi Ms. Luvene

It it quite easy to change the blue color to black. However, It does get quite complicated when you have a text widget with a few to a dozen links contained within because the the code gets longer and more disorienting with each link.

I think that you can simplify the process by taking it one code at a time and in its own individual text widget thereby removing all the need to search through dozens of lines of code to find the one that you want to change.
<!--
1) Open your site editor
2) Drag a text widget onto your page
3) Type your text and create your link
4) Click on the HTML button in the top tool bar. The last one on the right (it only appears when you click in or type in your text widget)

You will see something like this in the HTML editor pop-up box.

<p><a href="http://yoursite.com">Your Text</a> <br></p>

5) Change it to

<p><a style="text-decoration: none; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);" href="http://yoursite.com">Your Text</a><br></p>

6) Click OK

7) Click "Preview Page" The color in the site builder is still blue but your published page will be black

-->

To take that newly created link and place it somewhere within a large amount of text simply highlight and cut the new text with link attached and paste it anywhere you want within another text widgets content. The text and link will transfer over perfectly. This allows for you to work on one link at a time and not get lost in a sea of code.

Happy site building and let us know if you figured it all out

That sounds good, but I have a HTML widget that I use for anchor tags.

"01  "

How can I make the link black, underlined? I have quite a few of these links that I guess will have to be changed? No problem because I can do a search/replace in my text editor.

I have tried to work out which bit of html refers to the colour of the words I want to change, but to be honest, the stuff I am looking at bears no resemblence what so ever, to that above. And in any case, what would the colour blue actually look like in code anyway??? I need some help here.
