Right!
I'm not 100% sure whether I should be posting this here but I have searched all the Dreamweaver related forums and nothing helps me.

You all have some cracking websites so I'm sure someone must know the answer!

I have just closed my website so I can re-do the whole thing. I'm happy with how it's all turning out BUT all my links are blue.

It doesn't matter what colour I choose for my links in the 'page properties' bit, they are always blue (before clicking on them).

Preferably, I don't want my links to have a 'colour' (I keep getting ugly boxes around pictures when I don't want boxes around them at all).

So what do I do?
Is there a way of just having no colour on my links?

Cheers,
Sally

You need to create a CSS for links. In the CSS, define "none" for Decoration - it will then not underline your links.

a:link {
   color: ffffff;
   text-decoration: none;

Basically, that's what I've got for each bit (visited etc). I tried to change the colour to 'none' lol - but it wouldn't have that.

My links aren't underlined - they're just blue. I just want them... colourless so they don't put boxes around my pictures.

I'll put my site in my sig, I don't think I've changed it yet so you can see?

PS - thanks a lot ^.^ I thought it would be you who answered lol

For teh ugly borders around boxes you need to do this:

<*img src="YOUR PIC LINK HERE" border="0">

... but without the * and with your link (obviously)

What kind of code are you using on your page? html, CSS, do you have any java script in there etc. Without knowing this it could be several things causing your links to remain blue Smiley

Edit - You're missing the # from before the FFFFFF all colours should be #FFFFFF maybe that will help *fingers crossed*

Looking at the page source you have a few of the hexidecimal colours missing the #

Okay, CSS does work, you can even change the color to black or whatever, but - it is sometimes bitchy. For a link to not be blue, you need to add the color to the CSS, by the way.

If the link is already in the code, you need to be sure that the CSS is applied correctly. Most probably, you have already played around with trying to change the link to look differently, which means you have a number of code buried in there.

For that, you need to enter the code view. This is what the code looks like:

< a href="http://gila.com" class="link">pictures < /a>

My CSS class is called .link, and it means that the work "pictures is a link (without the spaces, of course) and the class for only this link (no span) is that CSS class.

The more I read... the less I know lol.

I'm not sure how to add the colour to the CSS.  Undecided

Truth be told, I just kind of jumped in and didn't actually read much so I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing on any level... Things I've done I've just sort of, worked out, but I know there are proper ways of doing everything.

One other thing is that I didn't make a template... so I have to change each webpage - is there a way to change that now?


.....should I start again....
Oh dear lol.

Thanks,
Sally

Depends on your site.... You can save a page as a template, but will need to delete all content/ changing pictures and add editable regions instead.

This is how I usually work:

- Make the layout in Fireworks
- Define web slices, export the pictures
- Start a new template page in Dreamweaver
- Build the page with tables - that is almost impossible to do if you aren't familiar with the tricks.

In the CSS, you can add different classes, for example header, subheader, links, text. That means that whenever you want to format something, you just use the CSS class - and if you change the CSS class, it will automatically change all pages.

When editing or adding a CSS class, you get a window with different settings - one of them is decoration (where you select none for links), you set the font, and you have a grey box where you can select the color. If it says "Automatic", that means the links will be blue - so you need to set it to #ffffff if you want them to remain black.
