Hi all, I need your help on why is my font color always changing, especially for hyperlink.

Wheh I reopen my last save project, it then changed into below color (number 1):

I have tried to re-apply the styles, the font color will go back to the right one, but then it happen again if I save and reopen my projects. 

There's also a case when the same style of hyperlink produces different colors (number 2) and number (3).

NB: this color issue happens on author mode as well as the generated output.

 

I also have tried to check the stylesheet, this won't fix.

 

Thank you in advance.

Have a nice day.

If you're not sure about html you can copy and paste from the top of the topic down to the <body tag (or even a few  lines past that if you want).

Just to confirm, you deleted the alink and vlink attributes, rather than just changing the value, yes?

I changed the value (color code). What I did is I searched for the alink and turns out it was hardcoded with the wrong color code.

You should delete the link styles if they appear in the topic source code. If you decided to change the link colour later, you would need to change every single topic. By deleting the references, the topics will use the colour defined in your stylesheet, so you'll only have to change it once. 🙂
