How do you colour hyper links?

I'm not able to colour a hyperlink. Any idea how to do this? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Derigar (talkcontribs).

If you're retaining your browser history, then any link you've visited changes from a plain blue

to
.
a purple - caveat, this visited link colour may depend on which browser you're using. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:45, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
And now I see you've asked this in a weird place because you're talking about this edit which is nothing to do with the Main Page... - please use Help:Ask a wiki question.
To answer your question however, you can change the colour appearance of links by doing something like [[Main Page|<span style="color:green; font-weight:bold;">Main Page link appearance</span>]] which would result in: Main Page link appearance -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:49, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I'm not used to using the wikia... I'd love to do more stuff but I'm clueless as to how everything is. Is there a page for new people to see how everything works? Sorry for being annoying The preceding unsigned comment was added by Derigar (talkcontribs).
You're not being annoying at all! We were all new once, and the wiki is pretty complicated at times. :) Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Practices and processes links to a few editing guides that you may find helpful. We also have a discord server where you can drop in for help with editing, or if you prefer you can head to Help:Ask a wiki question, as Alex said. By the way, don't forget to sign your comments on talk pages by using four tildes: ~~~~ —Idris User Idris signature.png 16:34, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
Not to mention that Derigar has helpfully stumbled across an annoying glitch in mediawiki where it doesn't like "=" signs in prose within templates... the wiki is still a head scratching exercise for me too! -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 20:33, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
