    Removing Hyperlink underlines (FrontPage 2000)

    I know I have read this before, but a search of my emails and on this site have revealed nothing. On the company website, I have "Shared Borders" to link to other pages. I am having difficulty removing the underlines on the hyperlinks. I have created some ok buttons but the text is not pretty with the underlines. It has been over a year since I used FP2k, CSS, HTML and JavaScripts. Since I am the Asst. Network Admin I get to update the web site once a year so my memory is all I have to go by. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>
    Your time is greatly appreciated.

    Are you using images for the links in your shared border or text?

    Can you attach a small screen shot of what the border nav looks like?

    I would think (?!) that on the page with the shared borders there are some page-level properties for what links look like, in one of FP's dialogs. I don't use this feature though, so perhaps you have to set it on every page? What a pain. But I'm fairly certain FP has a dialog for this.

    Re: Removing Hyperlink underlines (FrontPage 2000)

    To remove the underline from normal text that is used as a hyperlink, I simply select it and click on the Underline icon.

    The result is something like:

    <a href="http://www.company.com/logistics.htm" style="text-decoration: none">
    Logistics</a></p>

    Yeah, I would think so too, but if they are there I have not found them. The shared borders are by default on every page that needs them. I defined the "Child" level for these buttons but as for text modification I do not see a Microsoft interface.

    Leif, Yup, that is what I would do too, but unfortunately FP is not that way. When using shared borders you defining what you want shared (what pages) and then you get a couple of basic choices (Text or Button) and I have tried them without luck. <img src=/S/drop.gif border=0 alt=drop width=23 height=23>
    Again I knew how to do this at one point using HTML, CSS or JavaScript, I do not think I have ever done it in FP. Being a quite busy guy these are the things I tend to forget. <img src=/S/bananas.gif border=0 alt=bananas width=33 height=35>

    Try using the attached code within the head section - or you could make it into a style sheet and reference it.

    You are a goddess! <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15> So simple yet so effective. <img src=/S/fanfare.gif border=0 alt=fanfare width=31 height=23>
    The only thing I will need to check on is if it is fine with my boss to have all of the hyperlinks lose their underline.
    Also, how would I use it as a style sheet to connect to every page so that I do not have to enter it (your wonderful, enlightened, brilliant text) on each and every page?

    Re: Removing Hyperlink underlines (FrontPage 2000)

    Attached is the Top frame that FP2k put in as my Shared Text.
    It points to a "webbot". I have entered "style="background-color: #CCCCCC; border-style: outset; border-color: #C0C0C0; padding: .5"-style" in several places (after "Navigation" and at the end of the Webbot info) trying to get the "button" effect that I am wanting. No luck. <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>
    Does anyone know how to edit the Webbot? <img src=/S/boxedin.gif border=0 alt=boxedin width=25 height=20>

    Goddess <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>
    Take the sample text file I provided you with and save it with a .css extension
    Then you can go to the Format, Style Sheet Links menu and create the link to the style sheet. Later on, of course you can add all sorts of things to the style sheet and all linked pages will be updated, yah gotta love style sheets.
    In fact if you wish to link a group of pages to the same style sheet at one time, switch to the folder view and highlight the pages you want to link.
    Then back to Format, Style Sheet Links menu and voila - multiple pages linked at one time.

    "Does anyone know how to edit the Webbot?" ....

    You can't - okay, maybe you can, but in over 5 years working with FP I haven't figured it out and boy I'm going to cheesed with myself if it turns out to be something simple.

    But before I go making wild suggestions, I just want to be clear on what you want - I gather want your shared border to have a different appearance than the main body of the page?
    In that case why not frames?

    Re: Removing Hyperlink underlines (FrontPage 2000)

    An alternative which appears as text but doesn't act like it, and doesn't have the 'common' look of your average button, is to use a graphic image of text inside a single cell table. This can give you a much bigger 'target' area to click on and allows effects such as text colour change to be used. (Requires two graphic images)

    To see what I mean, visit this site, click on "Products", then move your cursor over "Solar Charge Controllers".

    Yeah, a mouseover. Unfortunately in FP2k and Shared boarders on the top you cannot do that. I have done the mouseover and for the updates site made the button changes on the left Shared Boarder, that is why I am confused with Micro$oft. Why can I make the changes on the left "frame" and not the top "frame".

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by WebGenii on 03-Oct-02 13:59. edited to add hyperlink)</P>'cuse I'm lazy. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I am er was using the default FP settings. I am in the process of turning the "Shared Borders" into Frames to resolve this "delima". By the way the whole thing stems from the Salesslime <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15> wanting our links to look like buttons instead of text (http://www.diversifiedplastics.com).
