Changing the color of hyperlinks in sage CRM

By | November 2, 2018

Now a day’s most of the Sage CRM users use Contemporary theme as preferred theme as it looks well organized and user friendly. Main menu drop down list, recently viewed records, top bar icons and buttons are well organized which helps user to access the information easily.

New StuffNotifications not working in Sage CRM 2017 R1 onwards

While browsing these changes in the Contemporary theme we observed that the color of each and every hyperlink is Green.

hyperlink is GreenWe had a thought in mind can we change the hyperlink color as we want? So we started digging for the solution and found this is something uses a CSS file which is responsible for the hyperlink colors.

As we all know Sage CRM is a browser based interface. It uses HTML and CSS.

The system screens that a user see as they navigate around the product are rendered in HTML.
CSS is used to define colors, fonts, layout, and other aspects of document presentation.

One thing we noticed that all hyperlink have same color and may be controlled by same CSS file so after investigating we found the CSS file used is ergonomic.css which is responsible for the hyperlink colors, this file is located at the below system folder path.

<<CRM install Directory>>/<<CRM instance name>>/ WWWRoot/Themes/

Now to apply new color you need to use hex color code which needs to be replaced from existing color code. You can find the option in the ergonomic.css page under EMAILLINK,a.WEBLINK style option. Refer below screenshot for your reference.

The highlighted color code is of Green color so you just have to replace with the HTML color code you want. Please note applying the new color code will apply the changes on all hyperlink colors in Sage CRM. In our case we added purple color html code. Please refer below screenshot post applying the changes.
