Hello!

I would like to have the links site-wide be underlined and a different color than the surrounding text.  Is there a straightforward way to accomplish this without having to edit each item manually?

Thanks!

Hello,

The problem with changing "all" the links is it would affect things like the menu links, login/register links, article links, extension links etc where you may want different colors. You could do this by using a !important call such as

a {
color:#ff0000 !important;}

But I would recommend doing this on a case by case basis by using firebug to find specific links you want to change.

Is there a way to format the hyperlinks in articles to be highlighted?

With a background color I'm guessing you are saying? Yes you can do it with something like the below. Just add it to your custom.css file:

Code:
#s5_component_wrap a {
background:#fbedac;
color:#00000 !important;}

Thanks for the response.  I'm not sure of the terminology, but is there a listing somewhere of the "elements" such as "#s5_component_wrap" that are available in a template and their scope?

These are just DIV ID's that we used in our framework. We haven't documented them as there really isn't a need outside of internal things. I added the ID so that only article links would get the highlighted color vs the entire site (like menu items, etc).
