The color scheme

A quick note on the color scheme. I cannot control the link colors. It is an artifact of Word. I’ve tried to get Blogger to change the link colors and it refuses to do so. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

  1. I’m on blogger as well, and I can change pretty much anything.

    Click on your ‘Design’ tab. On that screen you should see a toolbar reading ‘Page Elements,’ ‘Edit HTML,’ and ‘Template Designer.’ Template Designer allows you to change all kinds of things, including link color, visited link color and so on.

    It took a while for me to find it, myself–HTH.

  2. Tried it Wraith. The colors are an artifact of copy paste from Word. I’m at a loss as to how to fix it because I would have to basically re-write every post and add the links in Blogger.

  3. Well, I’m now seeing your links as either green (unread) or slightly-lighter green (read), using SeaMonkey version 2.0.11 in Windows Vista. That seems to match your previous statement of intent.

  4. My current “plan” is in future to add all the links here in Blogger. That’ll make the system work as you’ve described, Auritech. Previous posts have to be manually corrected, and I’ll do that for some of them. Sorry for those who have to suffer.

  5. Using Word 2007

    Word for Windows

    1. From the Home tab, click the small icon (
    Small icon
    ) to the right of the word “Styles”. Alternatively, press Alt-Ctrl-Shift-s .

    Note: If you have no hyperlinks in your document, Hyperlink will not appear in the Styles menu.
    2. In the Styles menu, hover your mouse pointer over Hyperlink, and then click the triangle that appears to the right. From the drop-down menu that appears, select Modify… .

    3. In the “Formatting” section, choose the color you want, and then click OK to save your changes.

  6. Bob, it still doesn’t work.

    The problem there is that because I use a white (light grey, actually) lettering on a black background, when I tell Word to change the color of the Hyperlink to (automatic) Black, the lettering comes out black on a black background and dissappears.

    When I cut and paste to Blogger, Word specifies black lettering. What I need to do is specify “default” color. Until I figure out how to do that, I’ll have to add the hyperlinks in the Blogger editor.

  7. Suggestion: stop using Word, and instead use something like w.bloggar.

    It abides by whatever formatting is native to your weblog, and posts directly.

  8. Sean,

    You can pick the color instead of just Automatic. Look for additional colors or something like that.

    The other thing you can do is change the background color of your Word from white to another color to match the color scheme used here.
