How do you remove the blue line under links?

Post by Bruce Banner » Tue Jun 16, 2015 12:11 am

I've been offered several suggestions. None of them have worked. Is it actually even possible?

depends on the links, where they are , etc.

normally you do it with the css:

text-decoration: none;

Is that links.css?

depends on what links you are talking about.


however, you can set it for all links there.

look in this section:

Code: Select all

a:link	{ color: #898989; text-decoration: none; }
a:visited	{ color: #898989; text-decoration: none; }
a:hover	{ color: #d3d3d3; text-decoration: underline; }
a:active	{ color: #d2d2d2; text-decoration: none; }

Nope, didn't work. I changed underline there to none and it had no effect.

did you refresh your theme after you made the change?

admin panel, styles tab
on the left, click on theme
on the right, click on refresh for your style.

submit
refresh your browser.

If that doesn't work, please give a link to a place on your board where you are seeing these underlines on a link.

Sorry for reviving this thread but I've just found out that the advice given apparently only works for posts. It doesn't seem to work for links in signatures. What do I do if I want a link in my signature but without an underline?

looks like it is here:
links.css

Code: Select all

.signature a, .signature a:visited, .signature a:hover, .signature a:active {
	border: none;
	text-decoration: underline;
	background-color: transparent;
}
