When I create a link in the rich text editor it's a different color than when it gets posted and is view in the thread. I can't seem to find the style option to change that editor link color so it's the same as when posted. Thanks!

hmmm the styling for rich text editor doesn't have an option for links. Maybe I can solve by putting something in extra.css?

It may sound daft but out of curiosity which browser are you using? Are you just using the default colours in the editor or are you trying to apply a colour to the link?
I have just found a bug/"feature" with using the editor in Firefox when you try to apply a colour to a link in the editor.

It seems what is happening on Firefox is that the colour tags are being applied outside of the url tags, if you look at the BB code then Firefox gives this
Code:
[COLOR=#0000ff][url ref=...]Link Text[/url][/COLOR]
Yet on Safari or Chrome etc the color tags are inside the url tag.
Code:
[url ref=...][COLOR=#0000ff]Link Text[/COLOR][/url]
So in the Firefox generated message the url tag formatting overrides the colour you have set.
