WebYep Hyperlink colors! Help!

I am using WebYep RichText on a site, and all of the hyperlinks that are added using the Rich Text editor are the same color (dark blue, underlined), which doesn’t mesh well with the other colors in the site design. How can I change the hyperlink colors in a WebYep Rich Text Element? Thanks in advance for any information.

Check the WY pdf manual on page 55 for instructions on how to create a WY specific style sheet and how to link your WY item to use that style sheet.

You can also use an external CSS editor like CSSedit to make a stylesheet for your WY rich text items.

Hi TB
The easiest way to colour the links to is to set the links within the colour within the inspector palette under pages appearance settings, which is the second tab across (it looks like a paint brush).
Then under links which is the bottom section just add the colours you would like the page links to be.
Finally when you publish and populate the WebYep items including the rich-text areas, the overall page colours should be picked up by the WebYep items.

Thanks so much, guys. Marcel- I will look into that, thank you.

Max- I’ve used this technique for entire pages before. The problem is that I have a section of the page that has a different background color with a WebYep Rich Text area over it, so it needs to have a different set of link colors than the rest of the page. Thanks again.

HI
the easiest way to do it for your scenario is create two styles.

  1. first look in the inspector palette (NOT the action palette) and copy the name of your richtext item
    So for this example I will call it mytext

  2. now open edit styles and click on the plus button to add a new style

  3. in the tag field add a hash, paste the name and then add a space and add an a so it should look like this:

      #mytext a
    

(the name field must be blank)

  1. now add your colour to this style with the drop downs that you can see on the right hand side

  2. Duplicate or create a new style but this time called it this in the tag field

      #mytext a:hover
    

(the name field must be blank)

  1. add your colour for this rollover state

  2. now publish

what should happen is that any layer (div) and in your case the rich-text area item will use these styles as its basic link colours and everything else on the page will use your standard basic page link colours

This will only work for the one item on your page which is named mytext so if you do have more than one richtext which you need the same rollover colours and they are on the same page then let me know and I will write it up on how you do it.

all the best max

One more question- how can I get a WebYep Menu item in a table cell to have it’s colors remain the same, regardless of whether or not the links have been visited?

Hi
How are you styling menu?
there are a few ways to do it… (all of them fairly painful)
so if you could send me an example of your freeway artwork I can then adjust the method to suite what you have…

Embarrassingly enough, styling is still not my forte. I am frequently confused as to what I am actually supposed to add the styling to; the container, the element itself, the text, etc.

I have just been trying to add the style directly to the cell itself, and have also tried using your trick above for styling the “T” area. Nothing has worked. Here is a link to an example file that I created:

Let me know what you find. Thanks.

Hi
ok had a look and to make things simple, here is the minimum yo need to style the webyep menu.

you need to create three styles so as before open up edit style click new and copy this in to the tag field (not the name field)

.WebYepMenuItem

click extended and add this to the name field

list-style-type

and this into the value field

none

then click ok and ok again to close the extended popup window.

Now lets make the other two styles
click new again and paste this in to the tag field

.WebYepMenuItem a

style it as you wish… colour size etc
then click extended, click new and add thisto the name field:

text-decoration

and again this to the value

none

click ok and then ok a second time to close the extended popup window.

now while this style is highlighted in the left panel click on the cog at the bottom of the panel and select duplicate.

all you need to do is change the tag name to this:

.WebYepMenuItem a:hover

and adjust the rollover colour
and finally remove the anything in the name field

and thats it
the menu will now pick up this styling

all the best max
