Wordpress - Link Difficulties [help]

Hello everyone, I'm trying to use H3 tags for my links.
For example: Check out this Great Fat Loss Pill
When I link it, it's blue in the editor, but it's black on the actual page and doesn't have the blue line under it. Currently, I'm just changing the color from black to blue, but it's just not right. Without the underline I don't know what to say, but it looks weird.

So my question is how do I get an H3 heading that is linked to show up as a normal blue underlined link?

Thanks,

Caleb

It looks like an H3 made into a link on Affilotheme 3 does not get underlined. You can underline it but make sure that your H3 text color is the same as your link color.

Hi Caleb,

You need to modify the CSS of the theme for H3 links to be underlined. Please add the code below to the Custom Scripts section of the AffiloTheme (AffiloTheme > Whole Page > Custom Script)

Code: Select all

<style type="text/css">

h3 a:link {
color: #FF0000;
text-decoration: underline;
}
h3 a:visited {
color: #0000FF;
text-decoration: underline;
}
h3 a:hover {
color: #FFFF00;
text-decoration: underline;
}
h3 a:active {
color: #00FF00;
text-decoration: underline;
}

</style>

Thank you, I will give it a try.

EDIT: On just one of my pages for some reason, it's colored red now, and when hovered over turns yellow.
EDIT: Actually I just noticed there are others with redlines under them. And on some when I hover the line below disappears.

So I ended up forgetting the password or username I don't know which, I'm sure it's the username to log into my website. I tried putting in my email, but that didn't work. What should I do?

I am just setting up links on my site but the link as suggested from the email text file as .../go/dog1 is not being allowed to go to the target link although that url works fine on its own. Any ideas?

Thanks
Michael

Whoops! I rethought this and realised I had put a circular link rather than to the kingdomofpets page!
Sorry all for being stupid :-)
