Links in message posts aren't obvious

@Bob, reference the email I sent you a few days ago, if you check this post, you'll notice that I'm not the only one unable to work out where URLs are in message posts.

@everyone, until such time as a change to the style which controls the appearance of URLs takes place, can I suggest that we underline links ourselves? PITA, I know, but...

I agree that the hyperlinks in posts should be changed - a color (blue maybe?), format (bold or italicized?), something. It would be nice if Bob could change that. :)

The problem is that there is no current way to change the links only as they appear when reading messages and changing them for the whole forum makes it look quite ugly; just about everything in the header, main page and when browsing the forums is a link so we end up with so much underlined or otherwise modified that it really isn't all that helpful.

troublesome templates... [:'(]

how about a simple colour change though? there must be some colour that fits the template and makes links a little more easy to notice than they are now? maybe some more blue?

Hi Bob.

I think that it is an improvement. At least with a slightly different color, readers should be able to find the link more easily than running the pointer all over the message searching for a hyperlink! LOL

Thanks for your effort.

BTW, this is my primary source for finding solutions to application packaging problems and has been for close to 5 years. And it keeps getting better.
