Currently the only way for links not to be underlined is if it is in a navigation menu. Text that is in the body underlines automatically in Sitebuilder desktop.

It is not necessary to have text links underline automatically. There are other ways to show that the link is there without is being underlined. Underlined links create an eye sore for people who are trying to design.

It would make more sense for users to have an option to underline the linked text is they wish for it to be rather than having it do so automatically.

HI Dean -

Thanks for bringing this up! While there isn't a setting in Sitebuilder that can remove the underlines in your text links, there is a workaround for you! You'd have to add HTML code, but hopefully this will work for you.

In Sitebuilder Plus, Click Page Settings in the top toolbar and select Advanced Settings. Add the following code into the head tag HTML:

(Note: In Sitebuilder Desktop, click on Page Properties > Advanced)

<style type="text/css">
a {font-family : Garamond; Font-size : 14px; text-decoration : none}
a:link {color : #8F826F}
a:visited {color : #8F826F}
a:active {color : #8F826F}
a:hover {color : #8F826F}

You'll want to revise the above code to the same font style, size, and color as your website layout.

Hope that helps!
