    Changing Link colors

    bmcguire Level 1
      I would like to make Hypertext links and Popup links different colors as a visual queue for the user. Is it possible to set different colors for these links in RH 6? I looked in the Help, but it talks about text-only popups. I want to change plain ole' popups.

      Thx,
      Brenda

          Hi Brenda. They are just styles like everything else. Change the Hyperlink style to the characteristics you want in your style sheet. There are styles for active, hovered, visited and unvisited so you can change them all as you like.

            Well, the problem I'm having is that if I change the hypertext color, it changes ALL of the links in the document. I'm being difficult and want the hypertext links to be one color and the popup links to be another. Is that possible?

              Brenda:

              You can add a class to the css file that shows different colors. For example:

              A.pop:link { color: #0000FF; }
              A.pop:visited { text-decoration: none; color: #0000FF; }
              A.pop:active { text-decoration: underline; color: #FF0000; }
              A.pop:hover { text-decoration: underline; color: #FF0000; }

              Change the style sheet attributes (text decoration and color) to match your requirements. When you enter the link, just add the new class to the text. For example, <a class="pop" href (and so on).

                Thanks for the explanation. I'll give that a try!
