How Do I Change the Color of a Hyperlink in Webflow?

Changing the Color of a Hyperlink in Webflow

Have you ever wondered how to change the color of a hyperlink in Webflow? Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to customize the color of your hyperlinks using HTML and CSS.

Changing hyperlink colors may seem like a small detail, but it can have a significant impact on the overall aesthetics and user experience of your website. So, let’s dive right into it!

Step 1: Understanding HTML Structure

Before we start modifying hyperlink colors, let’s understand the basic HTML structure. Hyperlinks are created using the anchor tag – . Here’s an example:

This is a hyperlink

To change its color, we’ll need to apply CSS styles to this anchor tag.

Step 2: Creating CSS Styles

To change the color of a hyperlink, we can use CSS properties such as color or background-color. Let’s take a look at two different approaches:

Inline Styles:

You can apply inline styles directly within the anchor tag using the style attribute. For example:

This is a blue hyperlink

In this case, we’ve set the color property to blue. Feel free to replace “blue” with any other valid CSS color value.

CSS Stylesheet:

Alternatively, you can define a class or ID for your anchor tag and write corresponding styles in an external CSS stylesheet. Let’s see how it’s done:

This is a custom-styled hyperlink

.custom-link {
color: purple;

In this example, we’ve assigned the class “custom-link” to the anchor tag and defined the color property as purple in our CSS stylesheet. You can change “purple” to any other valid CSS color value of your choice.

Step 3: Applying Styles in Webflow

Now that you’ve learned how to change hyperlink colors using HTML and CSS, let’s apply these styles within Webflow.

  • Log in to your Webflow account and open the desired project.
  • Select the page or element where you want to modify hyperlink colors.
  • Open the Styles panel on the right-hand side by clicking on the paintbrush icon.
  • Scroll down and find the “Link Settings” section.
  • Select the element containing your hyperlink(s), such as a text block or a button.
  • In the Link Settings section, you’ll find options to customize various states of your hyperlink, including Normal, Hover, Pressed, and Current. Click on any state you want to modify.
  • In each state, you can change properties like color using either predefined color palettes or by entering custom HEX codes or RGB values.

Step 4: Preview and Publish

Once you’ve made your desired changes to hyperlink colors, it’s time to preview and publish your website. Use Webflow’s built-in preview feature to see how your hyperlinks look in different states.

Remember to save your changes before publishing!
