How to change the hyperlinks color in my stlye?

A very good member on the forums helped me create a custom style for my forum.

Now I don't want to pester her with every request but I noticed that hyperlinks appear light yellow/beige in color so it's a bit difficult to differentiate a hyperlink from normal text in a post.

I was thinking how can I make the hyperlinks color light blue perhaps in that style?

Check this example which contains a hyperlink please:

sorry, been busy, feel free to pm anytime.
what you are asking is easy in vb4 but not in vb3. i have not tested with plain postbit, but,
to do this, find in your post bit:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

change this code to:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

then add to bottom of Additional CSS this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

this way you can change colors and hover.
eg: blue or #0000FF.

let me know how ya go. ;)

p.s if you want bold font or underline, just add:
your css would look like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I did the first part but where on earth do I edit the additional CSS?

Is that the vbulletin-style.xml file located in the Install folder?

EDIT: Nope, it certainly wasn't that because when I did the changes to that file nothing changed on the forum.

I hate vBulletin!! Changing such simple aspects of the forum require a person to reinvent the wheel!

This is actually simple but more easy on vb4.

Styles & Templates>>Style Manager>>All style options, click go on which style you want to edit. scroll to bottom. Additional CSS Definitions, paste in second box under the rest of the CSS i added for your skin.

You dont need to leave to style section ;)
you want me to do it?
the screenshot you posted about, the additional CSS is at the bottom of that page.
