    Hello everybody.

    It has been a while since my last post.

    I am in the process of developing my own website but the links and a form it's just doing my head in.

    I used to do this before on FrontPage and remember that the links were always a pain but the form was swift to create and very easy.

    This does not happen with SharePoint.

    I want my links to be just one colour, either when see, active or visited and another colour when over. I have set the page properties for Hyperlink: white, Visited hyperlink: white, Active hyperlink: white and Hovered hyperlink: green.

    When you then post the page online, you visit the website and there they are again in blue. Do a refresh and they are in blue yet again. FrontPage was the same when it came to links. After clicking through the links a couple of times eventually they are displayed as they should but never at first glance when the page is opened.

    I am neither webdesigner nor creative. All I want is to have some sort of existence online for my IT business. In the rare event that this may be breaking the forum rules, I will not post here the link to my website as it is a business and may be seen as advertising it but I will pass it on to whoever may help me please.

    Any help well appreciated on this matter.

    After this there is the GOD forsaken form that also is doing my head. All this needs to do is to collect data from customer when one wants to contact us, so fields for First and last name, email, and message body.

    Sadly my knowledge of html is very very limited.
    Anybody had the same problem? How did you got over it?

    Cheers everybody.

    Hey

    Drop me a PM with the page URL so I can see what you mean.

    I don't understand why you want to use sharepoint to host simple website.

    Anyway, drop me a PM and we'll sort it out.

    If you look through page code source you can find that higher up from a, a:hover, a:visited, etc there is an item a:link which has blue color set up against it.

    Not sure where the CSS is generated from there but that's the style definition that renders blue links.

    The color is actually set to white (#FFFFFF) do not know why is it showing bluen when seen on the web.

    This is what I have on the html code.

    color: #FFFFFF;
    }
    a:visited {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    }
    a:active {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    }
    a:hover {
    color: #336600;
    }
    .style35 {

    I guess I'll have to live with it for now.

    Any help with a customer form on sharepoint? Or any tool easier to creat a website?

    Cheers.

    Sorry but I have misread what you have said.

    I have done it and it is working.

    Now it's me working my ways with a customer form which was way easier with frontpage.

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers.

    Now, you've changed a:link and it seems ok to me.
    It's still showing blue link in underconstruction page but if you look at the source again there is a:link { color: blue; } entry in CSS section.

    To address the fact that after some clicking about link gets the right color:
    That's because after you clicked it a:visited overwrited the a:link attribute.

    What help exactly do you need with the form?

    Sorry LuckP;

    I am working on it as we type away. I have only done the fhome and about page and have uploaded them.

    I am working on the others and doing some google and youtube search on how to creat a customer form where data can be sent to me by way of e-mail, just like frontpage did but alot more easier.

    Thanks for your help mate.

    Any idea on the form?

    Cheers.
    Albert, C

    Very nice.

    Have tried it now and posted.

    First time around when I clicked send this form an e-mail window poped out.

    Have done some changes so that it would send info to an e-mail account.
    However after that, I get an error. It may seem that my webhosting company, 123-reg, either does not support frontpage extensions or I have to set them up.

    Hello LuckP;

    The form is there and I have done some more tweeking but not working yet.

    I have to check with my hosting company to check if there are frontpage extensions in place.

    If anybody can help would be more than appreciated.
