Is there a way to differentiate how an external link looks?

Hey all !

My first post here, so forgive my lack of etiquette (if any).

I would like to let readers know the difference between an external link and an internal link (link to other posts or replies from within the forum) by means of any styling element - icon,emoji, whatever.

Is this already possible ? If so, how ? If not, how could I achieve this ?

Thanks !

Welcome to Meta! You can do this with some CSS:


Thank you for the welcome and the prompt reply!

Unfortunately, I am not sure if I follow. If its possible could you walk me through the process of how I could install this CSS code into my forum ?

Unfortunately, teaching basic CSS is outside the scope of what we do here. You can add CSS via Admin, Customize.
