How do I edit just link colors?

    What's the best XF way to change link colors. Right now they're using @primaryMedium, but there are other things using this color as well that don't look good (with that color being used).

    I'd like to override the color of the links in content, like/reply links, etc.

    In your xenforo.css template
    Code:
    pre, textarea
    {
    word-wrap: normal;
    }
    a:link,
    a:visited
    {
    color: @primaryMedium;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    
    From there just replace @primaryMedium with #whatevercoloryouwant

    Click save. Now head over to your showthread area, what's next? It's pure magic ;)

    Thanks! I'm curious though, why they didn't include a section to change link colors, etc. It's just not so obvious.

    Heh, wish I'd seen this earlier. Went about it a different way - I changed the primary medium to the color I wanted the links to be, then changed the background/header in the area I found to do that. :p

    It might be because of this:

    I'm not even sure anymore what I've changed to get what effect, for awhile there I was just throwing a #FF0000 into anything I couldn't figure out so I could track it down that way, and now I don't remember what templates I did it on. :D
