How can I underline all the links within threads?

    Dear all

    as you can see it from here, I would like to have all the links underlined in my forum posts because the current theme doesn't really make them nice and easy to see.

    Therefore, I've tried to get to the
    ACP > Styles > myTheme > PageNav, Link groups and Tabs
    and flagging "underlined" wherever I could, cause I don't understand what PageNav, Link Groups and Tabs are honestly

    However, it doesn't work at all.. so I'm here to ask for some humble help :)

    Thanks everyone!

    Without checking it, I think you can try this in extra.css
    .messageContent a.externalLink { text-decoration: underline;}
    Some css specialists will give you a better answer if this solution is not enough good

    You're my hero, thanks a ton!
    I also added a row for the automatic keyword replace

    .messageContent a.externalLink { text-decoration: underline;}
    .messageContent a.keywordReplace { text-decoration: underline;}
    Thanks, didn't know extra.css existed and handled all those stuff

    You don't need extra.css for that, its a setting in the

    Style properties / Message Elements / User-Generated Link

    Checkbox "Underline"

    Thanks to you also Walter, I believe that finding options in xenForo admin panel requires deep knowledge of the system, as there are toooooo many options and panels and subpanels and etc... :)

    However, can some of you please take a look at this post:

    and tell me if you understand why xenForo decides to underline only bits of links sometimes, and the whole ones other times?

    Thanks for your time,
    Marco :)

    It seems you know how to find css with your broswer, so you can use this tool. I didn't have time to check yesterday.

    The backslash character '\' is not valid inside an url.
