Chapter 6. Adding Hyperlinks > Setting Link Colors

Setting Link Colors

By default, FrontPage follows the Web convention of showing unvisited links as blue and visited ones as dark purple. However, you can assign any Web-safe color you want to your hyperlinks. FrontPage also lets you set colors for active links (the instant you click them) and rollover links (when your cursor moves over them).

To change a link’s color

1.
Make sure you’re in page view by clicking the Page icon in the Views Bar.

2.
Right-click anywhere in the page and choose Page Properties from the shortcut menu (Figure 6.33).

3.
When the Page Properties dialog box opens, click the Background tab (Figure 6.34).

4.
To change the color for any of a link’s three states, in the Colors section click the far-right arrows and pick a new color from the pop-up box (Figure 6.35). If you want to create a custom color, choose More Colors in the pop-up box. When the More Colors dialog box appears, click the Select button, then pick a color and click OK (Figure 6.36).

5.
When the Page Properties dialog box reappears, if you’ve already changed the link colors on another page, check Get background information from another page, then click the Browse button to find that page and automatically apply its colors to the current page’s links (Figure 6.37).

Figure 6.37. To apply link colors from another page, click the Background tab’s Get background information from another page checkbox. Click the Browse button to locate the other page.


6.
When you’ve finished making your color choices for the hyperlinks, click OK, and the links for that page only will be changed.
