No, seriously, I think it's developed it's own sentience and is screwing with me.
Being now a bit more familiar with the constraints of the Simple Layout Editor I decided to create a new layout with the system in mind, which was going great all things considered. I had the new layout up, things looked roughly like I'd want them to look, and overall I was pleased with the result.
That is, until my links started to vanish at random.
Now, they don't disappear exactly. Rather, and seemingly with no real pattern or reason behind it, my links will turn white (matching the background color they're on), which makes them effectively invisible to people who don't know they're there. At first I'd assumed I must have skimmed over a "visited link color" option in the editor and just needed to fix that, but after much searching I've found no such option available.
The links are, at all times, supposed to be the same shade of orange and underlined, with no differentiation between visited and non-visited links. This isn't exactly layout-breaking or anything (and, to add frustration to the entire situation, this is one of the few things I could manually fix in the code. Yet, using the SLE, I can't do that) but it does make things look a little stupid, as well as making navigation difficult for those folks who don't know to look for the links anyway.
So... am I just an idiot, looking right at the editor option to fix this without seeing it, or is there any suggestions on just why the system wants to mess with me?
