Sorry Brian.
Yer poor old mouse finger is just going to have to be worked to death. There isn't a mod for what you are asking, and most of the mod writers are trying to get their mods updated for the new phpbb forum program which is completely different from this version. (code wise)

No problem, I was just wondering. Thanks for looking into it. :smile:

Okay, I've got a new one which may be more doable. And it will save me seven keystrokes every time I type a hyperlink, instead of that measley single mouse click item before.

Can we make it so that hyperlinks are underlined, in addition to being a different color?

For the purposes of this demonstration, replace LALALA in your mind with the hyperlink (url) tag, and BOO with the underline (u) tag.

Let's say I want to put a hyperlink inline with a body of text. The way to do that is to type [LALALA=http://someurl.com]something like this[/LALALA]. That makes "something like this" a hyperlink, as expected. But it is just a different color, not underlined as is the usual convention for such things. Plus in subSilver (I can't speak for the other themes), the color is not significantly different from the regular text. I've found that the lack of underlining sometimes makes people miss a link. My way around has been to type [LALALA=http://someurl.com][BOO]something like this[/BOO][/LALALA], inserting the underline tags inside the URL tags. If this keeps up, I'll have to replace the 'U' key on my keyboard! :huh:

Thanks. :P

Huh. I hadn't even noticed that this BB somehow suppresses the underlining of links embedded in the notes.

That's because of all that extra typing I do to shield you from the harsh realities of life on the BB. :x

Don't worry about me, though. You kids go have fun.

OMG, I just became my mother. :cry:

I don't know if I can do it or not. I'll look into it tho. It is odd that phpbb supresses the color and line, plus, the link is supposed to be underlined anyway. I shall see what I can do.

Ok, as a temporary fix, I have changed the link color on subsilver. If you use the url tag, [ url=http://www.trucker2000.net ]Add text here[ /ur l] (spaces added for you to see) It will look like this. That'll grab someones attention. :D
I'll look at the rest of the color scemes and see how they look.

Edit to add: I fixed it on all the color scemes eccept LordOfTheRings. That one is hard coded so I would have to get into the files to fix it. but it looks bolded so that kinda gets your attention.

Actually, your "It will look like this" still looks the same in subSilver, sorta dark bluish in color. I've noticed that some of the thread titles in the forum view are now bold and red, though. But not all of them. :scratchhead:

Links in the browser's recent history seem to show up as red. Clearing browser history made the red go away. Although the numbered page links on the forum level don't seem to turn red after using them and then reloading the forum page - don't know why they'd act differently than the main topic link unless it's just the length of the description on that link.

Hmmm, I'll have to dig into the code to see if I can fix this.

Hopefully, it's fixed. It's not the color I chose, and it's not underlined, but the color difference is definately noticeable. :D
