    I just started a "Delaware and Hudson" WebRing within Yahoo! and have a small HTML issue. The "TEXT" colors are very light since my LINK and VISITED LINKS are Yellow by design. This makes the light yellow of the Yahoo! WebRing hard to read. Is there some HTML code I can place around the Yahoo! WebRing script to change the color of the text to something darker without effecting the rest of the page? :rolleyes:

    I see what you mean :(. The only thing I can think of is making your own.the Yahoo ring has one gif to copy, but you will have to make up 9 seperate icons for the others. The two rings below the Yahoo one have seperate gif's for the links. Take a look at the codes for them. The DRGW web ring on my Utah Rails has been rebuilt that way. Just takes time unless someone has some java script that will fix it.

    Something I would look into is getting a Bravenet Web Ring. That is what Keith did for the D&RGW Ring and have not had any problems. Just a thought as you only have 4 members on the ring.

    No idea...

    had tryed a heap of things but when the code is only
    <!-- Begin Yahoo Web Ring -->
    <script language=javascript src="http://ss.webring.yahoo.com/navbar?f=j&y=stourbridge_lion&u=98236260810262296"></script>
    <!-- End Yahoo Web Ring -->

    there is nothing that you can do to change the colors on the scripting... Is there nothing in the options for the link text and text colors with YAHOO when you set up a webring???

    This also answers why 50% of rings left the old system of webring.org when Yahoo :( bought it out :(

    I think Jim has a good idea with Bravenet. Or at least before it gets too big, I would scrap it! :eek:

    What I'm being told by Yahoo! Web Ring Support is the LINK/VLINK setting of my page has direct effect on the Yahoo! Web Ring link colors. There only suggestion so far is to scrap my use of YELLOW text/links on the page and pick a differnet (darker) color. Can't picture a DHVM site without Blue/Yellow color scheme. :mad:

    Anyway to switch LINK/VLINK settings within the same page? :confused:

    Was shotting for a dark yellow (as it looks on my laptop); but, at least I can adjust to a lighter color if it is truly coming out orange. :rolleyes:

    I sat at home the otehr night for 3 hours trying to figure out that Yahoo thing, changing the VLINK and LINK is the only way. All I can come up with is to create buttons for the other links on your page, and then change the LINK/VLINK on your page...

    I went to a another site in your ring and his code was <font color="green">GREEN!</font> so I knew it was only the LINK/VLINK code..

    And no you cant as far as I know change the LINK/VLINK colors as you go, its one or none.. Unless you use some HTML program that may allow you to do this.

    Simple way out. Create buttons for other links on page.
    Hard way out. get some HTML program and learn that and seee if it can be done.
    try http://fosi.ural.net/ and get HOMESITE 4.5 I think it is and try that.

    Now that new ring looks better!
    You now realise that you need to create new buttons on there, Yellow text and Blue buttons or the other way round..

    The links in your ring code( :eek: ) are pointing to Bravenets site
    &lt;http://images.bravenet.com/pub/sitering/prev.gif&gt;

    Create some buttons, load them up on to a server, and change the code in your Webring thingo..

    Just an idea [​IMG]
    Glad it works now and your happy..
    Me!

    inside each link, put put a font color like this:
    &lta href="URL"&gt&ltfont color="######"&gtlink to&lt/font&gt&lt/a&gt
