    Hyperlinks in posts (now with Poll!)

    If a hyperlink is in the middle of the post text it is not easy to see that it's a link. Obviously the post narrative would give a clue but the link doesn't stand out like it used to.

    LOL the server was rolling the css updates to all the different styles, that would explain your delay in changes. I have lightend the blue and also underlined the links.
    Hows that?

    Cheers

    doesn't need to be underlined all the time - so long as it stands out from the normal text

    Ah yes that works, not sure I like it but it works so I'll leave it like that for now. Presumably Ctrl-F5 toggles to turn it off again?

    No CTRL-F5 forces everything to be reladed, and not to use ur temp files...

    Voting will close @ 22:30 then I will apply a colour/style.

    Generally you have to ctrl + f5 to get imediate changes as your browser correctly caches the css files to allow for faster loading.
