Changing Appearance of Links

Examples of OpenLinkz have so far been shown on light colored backgrounds. Suppose you have a dark color scheme on your pages? No problem.

The OpenLinkz widget can be configured to provide different styles for the appearance of links. There are three options:

(1) You can adjust the border underneath the link. It can be solid or dashed.
(2) You can adjust the color of the border under the link.
(3) You can adjust the color of the link when you hover over it.

Some examples are shown below against a dark blue background.
