      I have been building sites in dreamweaver for awhile now.


      I am in CS4


      But I have never been able to figure this out.


      I am using 2 templates and I only want certain links to change colors


      When I make a word a certain color I dont want it to change colors even if it is a link



      Some of my links are not changing but then the ones that are white text are showing up blue when I link them.


      Its frustrating


      Please Help

          please have a look to your the link in your source code. Here you will find something like that:


          <a href="YourSite.php"><span class="Stil5">


          Complete the entry as follows:

          <a href="YourSite.php"><span class="Stil5" style="color:#FFFFFF"> or of course an other color code.





          Your subject line "Hello", hm.

              it doesn't look like a source code. Could you please send me a link to your website, or if not possible your source code?


              But I've forgotten: look to the preferences (here from german DW):





              Here you can change the links's color.

                  Hi Sandy,


                  I succeeded changing "Home" into white color. Actually, I did what I advised with: "look to the preferences ...(Page Properties)"


                  But 'till you can do this, you have to remove the the non-editable areas of your template, which appear in source code in a light gray. Written is something like: <! - InstanceEndEditable ->. There where you can change an entry completely unproblematic is the editable region between:
                  <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="Here is something written, like title aso" -->

                  <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->


                  One way is: Talk about the change with the creator of the template.


                  But now back to my approach:

                  I deleted all these these <!-- and --> in your source code (it's a sledgehammer method of course).

                  Copied the source code in a simple txt-editor.

                  Changed and deleted all these <!-- and -->, you can't edit otherwise.

                  Then went back with the contents into a really new and blank DW-file (that means I deleted all entries in my source code before I copied the changed text file).

                  Changed the link colore to white (page properties)

                  DW completed the path like this:

                  <td width="145" align="center" valign="bottom" class="style56"><a href="http://www.beads2rhinestones.com/index.html">Home</a></td>


                  And now look here:




                  Home has changed from blue to white. Of course, you have to delete all these entries in your source code: <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="title" --> and <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->.

                      Hi Sandy,


                      as I can see you made the home white already. Did you use a different way? If yes, I would like to know how, naturally.Hans-G.
