    Hi There!

    Can someone please answer my question?

    How do you make a link (say I do a link via. picture like "click on this

    picture to enter the website" or w/e) white?

    It keeps on appearing as blue and after I click it it's purple, but I want it

    to stay transparent and white all the time!


    can someone please help???

    THANKS,

    SNIR :)

    Blue and purple are the standard colours for links (link and visited). You
    need to use CSS - here you are:

    why would you want to make someone click on an image to enter a site?

    a img{border:0;}

    I prefer throbbing red but each to their own.

    You've already had answers that describe 'how' to achieve the effect.

    If you want it to stay white *all the time* use the markup below, but it's
    not generally considered good practice to do so as it can confuse people who
    are used to the blue/purple effects.

    Try ...

    <body link="#FFFFFF" vlink="#FFFFFF" alink="#FFFFFF">
    <a href="URL or page Link"><img src="image.jpg"></a>

    If you want the new link page or image to open in a 'New Window' it's the
    markup below ...

    <body link="#FFFFFF" vlink="#FFFFFF" alink="#FFFFFF">
    <a href="URL or page Link" target="_blank">><img src="image.jpg"></a>

    Steve - *trying* to be helpful :~)
