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
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)

Can we please get a Night version for after dark?

Title pretty much <3

You're amazing, thank you so much! Just wish it would automatically go light during the day, dark during the night. Thanks! --Derigar (talk) 21:25, 14 September 2022 (UTC)
Tanetris would kill me if it switched to vector at night. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 22:02, 14 September 2022 (UTC)

Major improvement suggestion

I cannot describe the number of times I have now made half of something, only to find out that one component of it is NOT something you can create at all, or, almost as badly, requires a recipe that is not readily available or built-in. I would suggest that anything crafted that requires a not-readily-available component (meaning, "Look closer at this one before attempting") be somehow marked that way. At a guess, just doing the item itself, as well as the subcomponent if you're looking at the recipe for it, in italics. That's just an idea but any marking possible -- another font, another color, whatever -- would be a MASSIVE improvement in the crafting elements of this wiki. It would be a thing to fix over time, but it would be A Real Good Thing. Even a special character (e.g., §, µ for example) by the item in the crafting component listing is a thought.

Odd talk page to choose, but ok, I'll humour you.
How would you suggest we agree on those items you are describing? Are we talking "items crafted only for achievements" (e.g. Eggs Beetletun has a recipe only available through a collection)? How would you avoid ending up with every slightly-awkward recipe? -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 22:23, 30 July 2023 (UTC)

Seasonal main page background

Halloween ended 2023-11-07, and it's been one month already (also Wintersday is approaching). Is it natural to keep the seasonal background until the next festival rolls around...? --BryghtShadow (talk) 10:20, 7 December 2023 (UTC)

May be a cache error on your end, try clearing your browser cache. (I don't see the Halloween theme.) —Kvothe (talk) 14:54, 7 December 2023 (UTC)
I should have specified that it's the Vector (old and new) skin (which is not served for logged out users, because they get Monobook). Halloween themes were added here MediaWiki:Vector.css but has not been removed since. and --BryghtShadow (talk) 10:50, 8 December 2023 (UTC)
Lol oops. Consider it a dual purpose demon theme. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:43, 8 December 2023 (UTC)
