[Pro] Changing the colour of multiple links at once

I have six external hyperlinks on a page, and I would like to issue one command to FW Pro (v. 7.1.3) to make a colour change in all six of the links when they are displayed in a browser window. If such a command exists where can I find it, please? I apologize for the fact that a long time ago someone on the Freeway staff sent me a response to this question; but that exchange has been lost for my emails. I have spent nearly 2 hours digging through the Freeway manuals, studying the Forum discussions about hyperlink colours, and the W3 School’s discussion about properties of the tag, as well as trying various tricks none of which succeeded. At this point I conclude that I am stuck with manually changing the colour of each link, one by one, in the Inspector. I should be grateful if someone could tell me how to to get that colour change on all six links using only one command. P.S. if you visit the page you will see that one of the links is in blue. That is because I went to the inspector and selected blue for that link. Thanks in advance.

If you managed to change one link colour in the inspector then you are nearly there. You probably had something selected when you made the change in the inspector. That’s the correct behaviour so you can have different link colours in different section. One section may have a different background colour that makes the link harder to see so you can change it to something else just for that section

If you want to change all the links to the same colour then make sure you have nothing on your page selected, click on the pencil tool in the inspector and then in the links section pick the colours you want for the four states. If you are using a master page then you can make the changes there and it should be applied across your site. The small ‘u’ square that appears after each colour allows you to switch underlining on and off. Personally I dislike websites that switch the underlining off in the ‘normal’ or ‘visited’ states as it makes identifying links (for me at least) much more difficult. I sometimes switch the underlining off in the hover state if I think the colour change is a bit subtle.

All the best
