    I am having a problem when I insert a link into a hub. For some reason it is appearing as a light grey color that is very difficult to see, instead of the bright blue that is supposed to appear. Has any one experienced this and if so, do you know how to fix it?

    Links that you visited are shown in gray. I believe you can change the setting somewhere in browser options if you'd like. smile

      Hi Misha,  I noticed this post and this is one of the problems I'm trying to solve on my hubs also.
      I've looked to see if I can figure out how to change my links from grey to blue but cannot find how to do this.  Can you explain further.

      Thanks very much

        It is called Visited Links and Unvisited links, and you can change them under Tools-Internet Options-General-Colors in IE7 and Tools-Options-Content-Colors in Firefox.

    Your right. I can change the browser setting to change the link color. I found out I don't need to do it though because the links are the right color on other computers. Thanks

    All the links on all the computers that have visited a certain page are displayed in gray (well, most anyway). This is to show people that they have visited a certain page and cannot be changed in the way you are considering.
