Remove Underline from Link Text

Remove Underline from Link Text

Remove Underline from Link Text

I use GoLive 5.0 - still works great and suits my capabilities.

However, I cannot figure out how to remove the underline from the text of a link (as one of my clients has requested) and have the text continue to function as a link.

Can anyone suggest how to accomplish this?


RE: Remove Underline from Link Text

The easiest way is using CSS.

If your already using CSS simply add the following to your css definitions:
p { text-decoration: none; }

and none of your links will have underlines.

Are you trying to remove ALL link underlines, only those from a certain area of the website or only from one link?

Can you post a link to the page where your doing this?

RE: Remove Underline from Link Text

The pages I am working on are temporarily posted at http://freeblues4u.com

I would like to remove the underlines from the links posted in the header and footer of each page, but not from all other links.

I am not using CSS - just GoLive 5.0.  Any chance I can achieve the results without upgrading my software?

RE: Remove Underline from Link Text

Looks like you got it figured out. I highly recommend you learn CSS. Right now your pages are full of font tags. The power and flexibility CSS gives you to easily change your site is empowering.

RE: Remove Underline from Link Text

Thanks for the tip.  It took some canoodling, but I got it to work. You can see the results at www.freeblues4u.com

For your reference, here is the method I used to eliminate underlines on link text for an entire page in GoLive 5.0:

In Layout click the CSS icon at the right of the header - on the resultant Style Sheet, right click and select "Add Selector" - Choose "a" - In the CSS Selector Inspector window, select the "F" Tab and select "none" in the Decoration menu - Preview and save the Page.

Thanks Again

RE: Remove Underline from Link Text

The power of CSS goes way beyond that. For example, instead of adding that CSS selector to every page you can put the selector in a seperate file then link each page to that css file. This way if you want to change the properties of the selector you only have to change one file in stead of every page.

You can also make the selector affect only parts of your pages. For example a selector of ".nav a" could only effect links inside a NAVigation area if you wrap your nav links in a tag with a class="nav" property.

I'm REALLY bad at explaining this.
