Hyperlinks
« on: May 03, 2011, 02:43:09 AM »
Sometimes when people embed text hyperlinks in their sentences, I miss them.  I know they've been missed by others before when I've done it, too.  I've taken to underlining mine to make them stand out.

Just wanted to throw that out there.   :)

Maybe the board code could underline links automatically? That would be cool.

Indeed it would.

I think IE used to automatically underline the hyperlinks.

From memory, the underline is a part of the Cascading Style Sheet in the forum software, and should be easy to change-- it's a}. underline, or something like that.

Can someone re-post how to embed them in the message? I keep forgetting how to do it!

And if you want it underlined, this:

looks like this:

Making the link bold would make it stand out, too, since it would be more obvious the text wasn't black.
