Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.

Most browsers will show links by default in blue and visited links in purple. BOOOORING!!! That, and purple just doesn’t look good on some people ,But with a little bit of CSS, you can style your links any way you like. add this to your advance css section

a:link {color: #006600;} (green)
a:visited {color: #FF0000;} (red)
a:focus {color: #9933CC;} (purple)
a:hover {color: #000099;} (blue)
a:active {color: #FF9933;} (orange)

Thats its just hit save.

This is what each link does i guess you can change it to whatever,havent gotten that far yet

link – default (so your standard, never-clicked link)
visited link
focus – when tabbing with the keyboard
hover – when the curser moves over the link
active – the moment the link is clicked..

still working on it feedback is wanted thanks

    Very helpful for the beginners. Great work solo.

  • thanks so a beginner ,thought i do a little sharing,lol

  • I have applied a background color to my links and padded them to look like buttons.

    Is there a way to make the background color change colors along the lines of these same principals?

    I am trying to make the link/button be a different color when you are on the actual page the link/button points to.

      You could have something like this.

      a:link {
      color: #fff;
      background: #000;

      Then apply similar to solo's other classes that he mentions

      • thanks some more Chole,,

        a:link {     color: #006600;     background: #CCFF99;}

        a:visited {  color: #FF0000;     background: #ff6633; }

        a:focus {    color: #9933CC;     background: #ffccff;}

        a:hover {    color: #000099;     background: #ccffcc; }

        a:active {   color: #FF9933;     background: #ffff00; }
