    Publii is nice. And I’m happy that there is this forum.

    My question:

    I would like to create an override file for the Massively theme to change the design of link underline. Per default it is a fine dotted line, I would like to have a solid line that has a better visibility. Which is the file that contains the information about the design of the link underline?

    Thanks a lot.

    Custom CSS should be enough for this. You can add it in the Tools & Plugins section. Something like:

    a {border-bottom: solid 1px}

    Thank you for your help, privii.

    Could you maybe tell me a little bit more about how I have to do it? Where I have to insert this CSS-element?

    Never mind, if it’s too complicated to explain.

    I just thought I’d ask, maybe it is quite easy, if one knows how to do it.

    Best regards,

    For reference, for anyone reading the thread and looking for how to edit the CSS:

    You have two options:

    #1: The easiest way is to go to Tools & Plugins > Custom CSS.

    #2: The more complex method: Create a theme override, copy the main.css file in assets > css and paste it in your theme override (make sure to also copy the folder structure). Add your CSS overrides and changes here, and make sure to add /* comments */ to keep track of your changes once it comes time to upgrade.

    The advantage with method #2 is that you can benefit from the advantages of a code editor when making CSS changes, vs editing your CSS inside of Publii. If you’re making extensive changes and are knowledgeable in CSS, I recommend this method. The downside, though, is that anytime you have to upgrade your theme, you have to do a git diff of your modified CSS file with the latest one to make sure you have all the stylesheet updates you need.
