    I made a quick search on the forum and found that styling the link would need editing a template first :X3:. I want to style the link to make it appear as a button with the styling to match the 'Featured' label that appears with the new Resources Manager.

    Can it be achieved through adding CSS in extra.css?

    Although, unfortunately, I don't know how to do that.

    Not sure this is a great way of doing it but you could try something like the following, obviously with your styling.

    .forum_view a.OverlayTrigger { background-color: red; border-radius: 3px; padding: 3px 5px; border: 1px solid darkred;}

    Thanks, and that does the job; but breaks the view for guests.

    Could add .LoggedIn before the .forum_view :)

    Was just about to suggest that. Nice spot @Russ.

    Off-topic: @TheBigK - Excellent discussion you have going on here, very enjoyable read and I personally think it's totally worth it. If they succeed in getting to mars they will be the first space agency to get a probe to mars on their first attempt.

    Thank you @Russ. So should it look like -

    .LoggedIn .forum_view a.OverlayTrigger .... ? Or am I missing anything?

    @Shelley - Thank you for visiting our site and I'm glad you liked our debate. Feel free to join the discussion on our site; though it's about engineering; we welcome everyone!
