Can't see links

Tue May 29, 2012 8:53 pm

If people put links inline with the text, it's nigh-on impossible to see them.

Can we have a colour or underline style please?

This is exactly the reason I switched back to the default style :)

I'd suggest they use this mod: http://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/prime_links

Then they'll be able to set a specific color for external links to the ".postlink" class(external link), plus by default it adds an icon beside the link. Rather nice mod and the mod author supports his mods.

Yes, please fix this! Not being able to see the links is a huge usability fail.

IMHO there are many "small tweaks" that would make the raspite theme much more usable, but http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 750#p84750

We're expecting a few tweaks from Paul in the next little while; this is top of the list!

Not to be rude but, seriously, if it takes ~5 months to fix (well, it hasn't been fixed yet) a one line css problem that is "on top of the list" (where it sure belongs) you really need a new "website dude"...

No news regarding this issue?

Link colour

Wed Nov 21, 2012 1:02 pm

Can we please change the link colours on the forums, to blue or red... not black; at least give it an underline, or bold? Something...
It's very hard to distinguish a piece of text from an actual link.

In the mean time, I suggest that people who put links in their posts manually underline them with the u tags and put them on separate lines not buried in text, it is all about usability for folks learning.

Both the above suggestions are spot on, but this is a known issue and one that we've been hoping to rectify "soon" for a "long" time now :lol:

I just joined the forum and this issue popped up immediately. I figured that someone else must have brought it up with the admins. Someone did, 8 months ago.

It can't be hard to add

Code: Select all

a.postline { text-decoration: underline; }
to bootstrap-raspi.css, can it?
About line 127 would be good.
