    help question How do I Highlight an Imporant Link?

    I have a list of Important Links in the sidebar. I would like to highlight one of these links in yellow or put a small graphic next to it to make it stand out. How would I go about doing this? I just want to do this to one link, not the others.

    Thanks,
    BP

    Ezpages Improved Menus in Plugins will let you single out one link for special styling (color, background image, etc.). It will also enable you to highlight the current page link if applicable.

    Are you planning on making this plugin compatible with V1.5.0 in the future (if it's not already)? It sounds like a great feature. Thanks

    Neither of the two modified/overridden stock files has changed in v1.5.0, so there should be no changes required for the mod to be compatible with v1.5.0.

    Great! I will check this out. We may need it. Furthermore, I've discovered a 'fake' way of doing it. You can put tags in the page titles, so if you do <b>Pagename</b> or <span style="background-color: #00FFFF;">Pagename</span>, it also works. It's a simple way of doing it, but it gets the job done.

    Works if you keep the embedded code short and simple. There are limits in the dbase field for the number of characters this field can contain. Of course you can go into phpMyAdmin and increase the VARCHAR, but most people won't know how to do that.
    Our latest project is Pet Tags.

    True. There is that limit. I suppose you could also create a CSS class too. Then again, that gets complicated.

    By the way, "I never let my schooling interfere with my education - (Mark Twain)." is one of my 'favorite' quotes.
