The default text color in most applications for hyperlinks is blue. In some cases, due to the background color or the background image color, the hyperlink may not be clearly visible. The article provides the steps to change the hyperlink text color using the WYSISYG editor in the CMS Dashboard.
This is the expected result of having a background color similar to the hyperlink text color.
Note: As this change requires editing the HTML source code, caution must be taken. Since the editor we are using is strictly complying with HTML rules, all of the HTML default rules cannot be changed for the application. Regular text color can be changed, but hyperlinks color changes are disabled because it is a default HTML rule. The changes need to be applied individually.
