Styling links in rich text fields

I have a dynamic page that includes a rich text field. The H1, H2, H3 and paragraph stylings work fine, but I don’t see a way to style links that appear within the body of the rich text. It seems that the only option is underlining. Elsewhere on the site, we style links with one of the site’s colors.

Is there a way to do this in Editor X?

Hello, Jim.
I hope you’re keeping it well.

So, in order to reflect the design themes from the text elements, previously selected in the Theme Manager, the text element from the dynamic page must be connected to the Rich Text field in your dataset.

Once the field is set as Rich Text, open the content manager and select the text within the filed. Select the hyperlink element, and then choose the text design from the toolbar, among the titles and paragraphs options (H1, H2, H3, and so on).

That should apply only to the selected piece of text, while the rest should not be affected. Here’s a short video I recorded, so you can check how I have done it. Note that I am using H1 in purple to highlight the change I will apply to the link element.

You can check out more options in the article Working with Rich Content and Adding it to a Dynamic Page .

If this is not what you’re expecting, let us know by replying to this comment with more details, including a screenshot or video, showing how the issue is happening on your end.

Take care!

Hi, @danielab , thanks for the suggestions, but I don’t think they work for me. Maybe I’m misunderstanding?

Here are the issues:

The links I want to style are embedded within a sentence. If I use a theme style to style the link, I’ll be changing the style of the entire paragraph, not just the link.

Here’s an example of the kind of link I want to style:

The tag should include your pet’s name and your contact information. If your pet has special needs, you might consider a tag from TagsforHope . You can include special needs information on the back of the tag. For example, you can indicate that your dog is deaf, or needs medication. And as an added bonus, every purchase at TagsforHope helps animals in need.

The styling looks fine within the Content Manager (it looks exactly like it does above), but only the underline (which I don’t really want) is preserved when the page is published. What I really want to do is to show the link in one of our site accent colors, without an underline. Since I can’t seem to use a color, I’m stuck with using the underline instead.

And rich content doesn’t seem to be available as an Editor X field type – at least it doesn’t appear in my dropdown list. Should it be there?

Hi there again, Jim.

Sorry, I must have misunderstood what you were trying to achieve.

In fact, it’s not possible to change a text piece design if it’s within the same line : if the piece is in the middle of a phrase, it will not work, as it will change the whole paragraph.

The only way to achieve something similar now is to proceed as I instructed, but then, your text piece must be in a different line . Then, if you want to remove the underline selection, simply remove the U selection from the toolbar.

You can also add a screenshot of your Content Manager field, which you said is not showing the Rich Text option, so we can take a look. It doesn’t seem right, as it should show to you as the same as it’s shown in my video.

Currently, we don’t have this feature, but as it is a good suggestion, I will have the advanced department informed about this, so they can have it analysed, and considered for a future release. Although we cannot assure you if this feature will ever be available, you can keep the track of the upcoming features at the page Coming Soon .

If you have any questions or new suggestions, please feel free to reply to this thread, or contact us from the support link I provided previously.

Take care!

@danielab "Rich Text " is available in my dropdown. "Rich Content " is not available.
