Links all blend in with the text?

Post by sky on Mon Oct 13, 2014 10:16 pm

When people link text in their posts, it displays for me in the exact same font and color as all the rest of the text, meaning the only way to find links is to mouse over all the text and see if any of it changes color on hover. Is there either a way that I can change how links display when I'm signed in, or a forum-wide setting to make them underlined or a different color or something?

I've made the links a little brighter, how's it now?  I can change the colour easily enough, so if someone wants to give me a colour, that's no problem.

A link to Google Search
105289 (current link color)
373E4A (Normal text)

Pick one with reasonable contrast that looks link-y? 0055AA is contrast enough to my eyes, but maybe not for everyone. 5555AA actually looks worse to me, despite technically being brighter and less blue/black.

I've gone with 0055AA, which looks fine to me. But anyone who it doesn't look good for, let me know what you'd prefer.

I'm still having problems seeing these separate from the text. Would it be possible to add a formatting difference, like maybe underlining or bolding, to the linked text?

Or bright red with arrows saying Here's A Link! Something subtle like that? Wink

I can't easily change the formatting, just the colour. Is there a colour somewhere between the current colour and bright flaming red that would work better for you but maybe isn't quite so...bright?

Heh.

I like 00AA88 that nearly_takuan listed above. Or 0044FF.

But if a different color is a problem for other people, don't worry about it. The needs of the many, after all.

I'd vote for 0044FF. I have trouble seeing the links sometimes when I check on my phone, though my fat fingers usually mean I click on them whether I want to or not.

Nope, it would make links easier to see on phones

These colors looked great on my iPhone and they look hilariously bright on my monitor.:3
