#7550 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Website Redesign / Plugin Directory / A11y / links in content should be underlined

Reported by: joedolson's profile joedolson Owned by: dufresnesteven's profile dufresnesteven
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


Links in the body content of the description should be underlined. Currently, the only distinguishing feature between linked and unlinked text is color.

This violates WCAG 1.4.1 due to the dependency on color to identify links, WCAG 1.4.3 due to the insufficient contrast between the links and neighboring text.

The theme directory requires themes to have underlined text in body content, and our own sites should follow the same requirements.
