    I have a quibble over this forum's software. It does not properly show links. They do not display in underline and different color as on every other site.

    I either spend far more time fighting HTML than developing my post, [see the HTML behind http://www.goldismoney2.com/showthr...d-What-s-Next-Martial-Law&p=507252#post507252] or give up before completely documenting my cites. It's just not worth the trouble.

    I'm sure this is a simple option in the configs.

    I'm guessing that your scarlet skin is the default, but even if it isn't, why would you have a style that hides information like that?

    Maybe I can set up my display to show links, but what does that do for the next guy? He probably doesn't know to use some other style either. Why should posters take the trouble to source citations and to reference outside material when it doesn't show?

    BTW, here's what my screen looks like when I go looking for the skin option. How is anyone supposed to know about something that isn't there? You probably didn't know this is how it looks either. See my point?

    It clearly shows you where to go to change skins,

    I didn't know you could highlight links...:hmmmm2:

    Is that an auto feature in that the link highlights automatically?

    I'm using purple skin...

    no it isn't automatic,

    depends on the developer and what color settings he has used,

    some of the stuff I can go in and change once I know where to look

    It already shows a bolded black when you hover, indicating a link, I guess But my point is why do you have to hover to find that there is a link in the first place? Who hovers over the whole article?
