Hello,
I purchased and installed successfully Snowflake template following "hot_snowflake31_hotstart" method.
Everything is working fine but I need your support about a problem that I could not manage to solve by myself. Here it is:
I'd like to change text font colours in my articles. I use a wysiwyg editor and I can change all font attributes as I want, seeing everything perfectly in the editor. However when I publish the article font settings (especially colours) are different from those that I saw in the editor.
Is there any way to have them exactly as I had chosen?
I think some style settings override my choices. Is there any way to avoid all this?
Thank you very much for your help (I think I'll need more help in the future, so, please, be patient :whistle:)

PS
I noticed a very strange behaviour also. It's not important, anyway I point the thing:
If you go to some menu you find in freeze/unfreeze section (Interesting Sites for example) and change the Target Window option to New Window Without Navigation (only one link is enough)the title of the menu disappears (just try and see) :blink:

Style attribute you set from wysiwyg will always have advantage to css files style unles there is !important flag for css property we don't have. So maybe editor does not store that at all? If yuo save article close edit page and re-open it does it show with your colors set??

For other thing I don't quite understand question . We don't have "Interesting Sites" in our default hot start and you did not provide link to your site.

Thanks for your response.

Yes. If I close edit page and reopen text is with colour I set.

I provided some images to better explain the problem.
Example 1 editor and what I get
Example 2 editor and what I get
Maybe I do something wrong, but I do not know what.

-For other thing I don't quite understand question . We don't have "Interesting Sites...

You do have "Interesting Sites" menu. See here what happens choosing to open links in a new window:
link with navigation
link without navigation

Anyway here is the link to my site so you can maybe help better

Thanks for your support

One problem SOLVED.
I apologize for keeping you pay attention to a problem probably caused by my mistake.
The articles in which the problem about colours arose had been composed by copying and pasting text. For some reason, even modifying them using the wysiwyg editor, formatting was not modified.
I tried composing again not using copy/paste option but rewriting them entirely and now they work.
The strange thing is that other articles have been composed using copy/paste option, but they do work without any problem, so I'm a bit confused.
Anyway, problem solved, for now

I didn't found solution for second problem yet,but it is not important, it's just the curiosity to find out why this strange behaviour occurs.

Thanks again for your attention

Hi,
Could you please give me a little more help about colours?
I'd like to modify formatting of links.
I'd like having them in:
- a chosen colour without mouse over
- a different colour when mouse over
- not underlined
I managed having not underlined only, modifying

a:link,a:visited {
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:underlined;
to
a:link,a:visited {
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;

in template_css.css
but I couldn't obtain the others, even after many attempts.

Could someone help me?
Thank you

/*here put style properties for normal look of link*/
}

a:hover{
/*here put style properties for hover of link*/
}
