After several hours of searching the forum, haven't found anything specific on this question. What I'd like to do is control the color and decoration in the content area only. I have no problem doing that for the entire theme, but I'd like to have the links in the content only be the same color of my text with a dotted underline. Is that possible?

Thanks

I haven't test but I think adding something like the following to ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts should give you a black link with black dotted underline that changes to a gray dotted underline on hover. You would just have to fiddle with the colors to your liking.
HTML Code:
div.post-body-copy a {
border-bottom: 1px dotted #000;
color: #000;
}
div.post-body-copy a:hover {
border-bottom: 1px dotted #eee;
color: #000;
}

Thanks lmilesw for such a quick reply.

I used the code you gave me in the CSS, but it doesn't do anything. I checked to make sure I don't have any overriding code someplace else. Before posting this thread I had tried several different codes that I thought should have worked, but they didn't. A standard "a:link { +code }" in CSS works for the entire theme, but for some reason one just for the content doesn't. Of course, I comment out the standard code when I try one for just the content. I am currently using version 3.5.3, but that shouldn't make any difference for this. If you don't mind, let me know if you have any other ideas.

I knew I should have tested. Try the following and also set Link Hover Decoration to None in ATO>Body, Text, & Links
HTML Code:
div.post a {
border-bottom: 1px dotted #000;
color: #000;
}
div.post a:hover {
border-bottom: 1px dotted #eee;
color: #000;
}

Good morning lmilesw.

Sorry for not responding last night, but being an old fellow I had gone to bed when you got back to me around 10:00.

WORKS LIKE A CHAMP!

I knew there had to be a way. I had gotten frustrated that I couldn't figure it out. I am no expert by far, but I do know quite a bit and I know how to research. That's how I get most of the help I need.

I may be wrong, but I feel different colored links are distracting when reading something, so that's why I wanted to do this. It is greatly appreciated.

Thanks a whole bunch.

The Old Man
