Link Colors
« on: September 20, 2005, 02:10:45 PM »
Is it possible to turn off the blue+underline effect for URLs??
That way, instead of seeing http://comingsoon.com, you'd see the color actually assigned to it (such as: [Ctrl+k]5http://comingsoon.com => http://comingsoon.com)

If yes, how??

well...that sucks...

I mean...it was a good idea to include it...but, having an option to limit it just to forced underline (or, no indication, except a change in mouse pointer when hovered), would be sufficient.
But, most channels, I go to, place their URLs over a colored background...and [example] blue on red, generally, burns the eyes. When, otherwise, it would have been black on red...which isn't near as bad to look at.


Anyways...I noticed some strange effect with this feature..
In a channel, with a black background topic, (somehow) the link changed to black.
Just looked like a huge spacer.

Sorry, but this is not by choice. The control that is used is a richtextbox for displaying text (for version 5) and it is built into the conto. It is a control made by Microsoft, so it is nothing I can change.

For Version 7, the richtextbox is no longer being used, so this problem does not occur anymore.
But currently, there is no link color changing in the Alpha version of 7 as of yet, they just
show as regular text, but the cursor changes to a small hand still.
