Posting links

(Guardian of the bacon) #1

Admins: It may be my screen adjustments but when somebody posts a link using the link button there is virtually no contrast from the normal text. It is difficult to tell that a link has been posted.

How to: create a link

Moving to Site Feedback.

Agree with you on the lack of contrast. @richard, is this something we can tweak in the site theme/palette?

Perhaps an underline would work better?

The user can highlight the link selection and make it bold. Would be nice if the site did it automatically.


I concur. I totally missed a link in a post a couple of times today. If someone else hadn’t clicked through and the little number popped up, I never would have seen it.

Same here. I’ve read many posts where the author didn’t explicitly mention the link and it was very easy to miss that the link even existed. My preference would be a different color AND an underline.

Bolding works for me!

@richard. any progress made on making links more obvious?

(Richard Morris) #9

Yes we changed links so they had a greater contrast from regular text

regular text Bold Text Young Aussies more likely to fall for fad diets more regular text
