    Hi,

    In a previous thread about the accessibility ready tag, Tom said that:

    GP 2.0 was reviewed by one of the accessibility team members on WordPress.org and passed the test.

    We’ll be adding the tag soon 🙂

    That was nearly 2 years ago!

    Has there been any movement on this, as GeneratePress’ page on WordPress.org shows that it still doesn’t have the accessibility ready tag?

    Hi Claire,

    Don’t know if you saw the GeneratePress 2.4.0 release notes, but Tom mentioned the accessibility-ready tag:

    We were hoping to get the accessibility-ready tag on WordPress.org added to this version, but we hit a roadblock, unfortunately. We’re not able to get that tag without underlining all links in the content area by default. Since we’re not comfortable with introducing a major design change like that in an update, we opted out of the tag for now.

    I’ve been disappointed too that the tag hasn’t been added.

    Thanks Deborah and Leo!

    Are content link underlines something you’d consider in future?

    Or could they be an option to toggle on in GP Premium?

    Hi there,

    this is very high on our list, for WP to provide the tag the option would have to be in the Theme and I believe enabled by default which as you could imagine may upset a lot of users.

    Once we find a good workaround i am sure it will be implemented.

    In the meantime if you need we can provide some CSS to add link underlines.

    Yes please, if you have a link to the CSS to do it that saves me figuring it out!

    Thanks. 🙂

    Yes, I’d like the CSS code as well. Thank you for asking, Claire.

    So this CSS will apply links just to the content of pages and posts:

    .entry-content a {
        text-decoration: underline;
    }

    Thanks, David.

    Any reason we couldn’t use

    a {
        text-decoration:  underline;
    }

    Since I believe navigation and other page sections have linked text specifically styled?

    Not really. I generally limit it to the entry-content so it only affects the links i added to the post editor. But the a tag should be fine – just be mindful that content via hooks or another plugin may be affected if they don’t have specific CSS.
