Change Text Link Color On WP

Hello Warriors,

I recently started a niche site and decided to use a free theme, just for a start.

The theme is really great and beautifully designed but I have one problem with it. The the text link appears as black (that is the same color as the entire post text)

Therefore, someone visiting the site won't be able to see at once where a link is located on the page. I thought this is bad for a site promoting only clickbank product.

So this is what I want: I want to change the text link to blue color.

I really need help on how to go about this. All suggestions are welcome!

    Link color is generally specified in the theme's style.css.

    Look for stuff like:
    a:link{
    text-decoration: none;
    color:#333;
    }
    a:hover{
    text-decoration: underline;
    color: #333;
    }
    a:visited{
    text-decoration: none;
    color:#333;

      Should be able to highlight the link text and change the color of it in the editor.

      Wrong - both answers.

      NEVER edit style on a post level: make the changes in your stylesheet (style.css file of the active theme).

      P.S. Questions like this belong to the Web Design sub-forum, not here.

    Edit in your theme

    a:link{
    text-decoration: none;
    color:#333;
    }
    a:hover{
    text-decoration: underline;
    color: #333;
    }

    That will help you to change the text link to blue color.
