Some of you know a LOT more about computer stuff than I do, so I'll ask here. I've been trying to edit html to set the colors of links on my website.
I've figured out that alink (in the eighth line) means active link for the color of the link when you click on it, and link means the color of the link before it's clicked. But I haven't found anything that sets the color of the links after they've been clicked. Can anybody here tell me what I should be looking for and where to look?
Uh, well, GOOD LUCK STEVE !!
Hoping someone will chime in here, but it looks like you are on the right track.
Try swapping the colour between the "" on alink and link around and see if the link prior to being clicked has swapped colours.
If it has, then look up the code for the colour you want it to be and insert that.
Today though, most every website builder out there, and plenty are free, use a much more friendly interface, so one doesn't need to learn HTML anymore.
I use dreamweaver, and there is another good one called Web Serif. Still prefer dreamweaver though.
If you need help, pm me and I'll see what I can do to assist.
Hope this helps though,
Howdy Steve! Google "link states". I believe what you are looking for is "avisited" that should change the color of the link once you've clicked on it. The other one is you can change the color of the link when you put your mouse over it with "ahover".
This will give lots of reading!
Try "vlink" for visited links.
