Question How to change the hyperlinks color in my stlye?

A very good member on the forums helped me create a custom style for my forum.

Now I don't want to pester her with every request but I noticed that hyperlinks appear light yellow/beige in color so it's a bit difficult to differentiate a hyperlink from normal text in a post.

I was thinking how can I make the hyperlinks color light blue perhaps in that style?

Check this example which contains a hyperlink please:

sorry, been busy, feel free to pm anytime.
what you are asking is easy in vb4 but not in vb3. i have not tested with plain postbit, but,
to do this, find in your post bit:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

change this code to:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

then add to bottom of Additional CSS this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

this way you can change colors and hover.
eg: blue or #0000FF.

let me know how ya go.

p.s if you want bold font or underline, just add:
your css would look like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I did the first part but where on earth do I edit the additional CSS?

Is that the vbulletin-style.xml file located in the Install folder?

EDIT: Nope, it certainly wasn't that because when I did the changes to that file nothing changed on the forum.

I hate vBulletin!! Changing such simple aspects of the forum require a person to reinvent the wheel!

This is actually simple but more easy on vb4.

Styles & Templates>>Style Manager>>All style options, click go on which style you want to edit. scroll to bottom. Additional CSS Definitions, paste in second box under the rest of the CSS i added for your skin.

You dont need to leave to style section
you want me to do it?
the screenshot you posted about, the additional CSS is at the bottom of that page.
