Linked font size does not change with adjacent text size changes


phplist 3.3.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 with ckeditor plugin 2.1.2+20160514

I’ve had this issue for many happy years with phplist but I can’t figure out how to fix it and now with mobile integration I must.

Let’s say I have input the following sentence:

Go here to see what I mean.

And the word “here” has a URL embedded in it.

Now, if I change all the text of that entire sentence, to say, 22 font, everything changes properly except the link stays at a very small font size, which is annoying.

How do we make linked text change together with other surrounding text sizes?

Prefer inline html suggestions.

Thank you.


HTML styles can be specified globally (for instance in a ‘style.css’ file), or locally in the document itself. Most likely what is happening is that the ‘local’ formatting is applying to the paragraph text, but not changing the global style for links (which is why the link text is still small).

I have overcome this by editing the html source, using something like this:

<a href="[UNSUBSCRIBEURL]" target="_blank" title="" style="color: #999999; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 10px;">Cancelar suscripción</a>

where you can specify the color, font type and size for the link…
You will need to edit the exact wording for your application.
Once you edit the source, toggle the source button in the menus in ckeditor to view the effect of your changes.


Thank you so much for that!
