@jiangcaiyang by learning and using the most basic CSS.
@AOKP I've learned quite a few about maintaining and developing upon NodeBB, the way I could find is to modify NodeBB's default CSS, is there any way that we could not disturb the source code of NodeBB's internals in addition to achieve our goal?
Take a look at the first example here: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_link.asp there the link is changed to pink. You can play with the option visited, hoover etc and specify your color preferences in each state of the link. Nothe that id you use the 'a' selector it would apply to all links in the site. You can use a more restrictive selector if you find it to be so general.
It is by my practice, that I have to change the less code within
lavendertheme so that we could resolve this problem.
@link-hover-color: darken(@link-color, 15%);
You can visit my site for the effect.
@jiangcaiyang There is a place in the admin panel for entering custom css rules. Admin->Appearence->Custom HTML & CSS->Custom CSS.
If you put the CSS you want here, it will overwrite the board style. No need to modify theme styling files.
@HolyPhoenix Have you tried it? I've done this, but it does not take effect. Maybe this does not work the way that you could think.
@jiangcaiyang It works if you do it right. It doesn't take LESS variables, but it does work. Odds are the less styles have higher specificity, so your custom CSS rules are not applied. Use
!importantor something instead. It will certainly benefit you to not be held back due to incompatibility with newer versions of NodeBB in the future.
