I'm using hyperref to add pdf hyperlinks to all references in my document. I am using the pagebackref option, so in the bibliography I get a nice list of links to the pages the reference appeared. The page numbers are preceded by "-> pages" but this text is a light shade of grey.

I disabled colour boxes but I don't seem to be able to modify the colour of this text. Any ideas? It is too light right now. Here's the code I'm using:

\usepackage[bookmarks,bookmarksnumbered, colorlinks=true, allcolors=black,citecolor=black,
filecolor=black, linkcolor=black, pagecolor=black, urlcolor=black,
pagebackref,linktocpage
]{hyperref}

The question is, how do you configure hyperref to print the "-> pages" in the first place? By default it doesn't print it with the article class... So I suppose that you somehow modify the \backref... commands of hyperref and that the color is in there somewhere.

Here's an example how to change the text (and thus also the color) of the backlinks (found at http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3670&start=10 ):

\renewcommand*{\backreflastsep}{, }
\renewcommand*{\backreftwosep}{, }
\renewcommand*{\backref}[1]{}
\renewcommand*{\backrefalt}[4]{%
  \ifcase #1 %
    No citations.% use \relax if you do not want the "No citations" message
  \or
(page #4).%
  \else
(pages #4).%
  \fi%
}
