Links in cache listings

Postby OEnavigator » Sun Sep 02, 2007 11:15 pm

I need help. How do you place a link to another page in a cache listing? I used <a href="link">text</a> and couldn't get it to work right. When I finally managed to get the link in the font color was still black so I had to go back and change the color myself. I'm sure it's something simple because I bite at HTML.

Did you click the check-box on the cache listing saying you were using html in the listing?

Sure did. I still can't figure out what I did wrong. I've read over HTML basics on two different websites and they all use the same tag. I wonder if it would help using the [] instead of ().

No, the [] brackets are for BBcode, not html.

The <a href etc should work find on the cache listing but color can be controlled by a couple of factors including some you have no contol over such as the settings used by the person viewing it. One thing that might have been making the link black is that that is the default color for a link to a sight you've already visited.

I never thought of that :oops: I knew it had to be something simple. Thanks.
