    Link Colour

    Seems when copy/pasting links into a post the link colour defaults to blue, nearly merging with the background colour.

    This should be a simple default setting that can be changed maybe to light green or summat?

    just select the text you want to change and choose an alternate text color, white is best, in the font color menu at the top.

    I realize that, in fact I'd imagine virtually everybody would realize that, it's not the point. As the background colour chosen is blue, the default link colour, just like the default font colour, should be set to contrast with the background. A simple change, preventing the link colour having to be changed a million times.

    Such a little tweak will elevate us into the first-class expert category..... here in Thailand.
    Much like inventing an auto starter instead of always having to start the car with a crank....

    There has just been a discussion, again, in News, i think, regarding the matter. Default is set to blue. Seen it many times myself.

    There, blue. Easy to check isn't it.

    You're right, creating a link is white, but copy/pasting a link is blue, which is what I originally mentioned.

    No cop out. The problem is when people copy/paste (mostly) news articles, that was the original post.

    The gallery upload etc is a nightmare I try and stay away from, you need to do DD's course and be certified for that one.

    C'mon DD, you're making so much money now with all them banners, time to upgrade this Model-T of yours. There's plenty experts down in Walking street who will do it for a beer or two....

    Solution may be to make the background pink, seeing there are so many queerish people here......

    Well I believe you because I see that you did it.
    But my white links are also pasted in.

    I think there must be some code in the article which also gets copied and makes it blue
