More weird Opera issues
Link underlines this time

 8:37 pm on Oct 24, 2003 (gmt 0)

For some reason Opera (7.11) has stopped underlining links everywhere (except for WebmasterWorld weirdly enough). I've got author mode on as the default; I haven't even defined a user stylesheet.

I've looked for a preference that might have been set, but no joy.

Any suggestions from anyone?

So you haven't changed the settings in Preferences->Page style->My link style...?

I tried to uncheck the underline checkboxes and observed the behaviour you're describing.

No, both "underline" and "color" are checked there. I upgraded to 7.21 over the weekend, but I'm still having the same problem. I even tried checking "strikthrough" but that had no effect. However, when I checked "Always border on links" I do get the border (looks like a raised button).

The same version of Opera running on a different machine (same OS) looks fine.

Could it have something to do with skins?

Found the answer: Preferences->Page style->Configure Modes...

Had the "Use my link styles" unchecked under author mode. Checking it cleared up the problem.

Not sure why though--Yahoo! and Google (and everyone else but WebmasterWorld) don't style their links?!?
