On most fora that I use, links posted are highlighted in some way.
This one doesn't. Is there a reason for that?

Well, if I put a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], then it is barely distinguishable from the other text.
If it were underlined, or a different colour...

Ahh yes, I know the problem

I could changed that to create a highlight colour, however, the forum regards the links on the front page as url links and would highlight them as well.

I tried it when I set up the site, it looked ghastly..

Will investigate code to see if there is a different way of doing it

It really is quite hard to see links the way it is at the moment.

I tried changing the colour for links, but it doesn't show up well for some reason. I now captalise links, which helps a bit but is still a bit unclear.

Ah I think Badger has changed the link colour so it is now green.

A very good choice Badger!

I think the overall effect is a definate improvement and the links are MUCH easier to see.

Well done Badger, good work there a+

Don't blush at genuine praise!

It really does help Badger, so acept the praise and smile, rather than blush. Very Happy
