More weird Opera issues Link underlines this time photon msg:1587209 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? photon msg:1587213 7:18 pm on Oct 28, 2003 (gmt 0)
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?!?
