Forum OpenACS Improvement Proposals (TIPs): TIP #150 (Proposed): Display visited links in a different color in the default theme

Request notifications

Ladies and Gentlemen, I just realized, that in the /resources/openacs-default-theme/styles/default-master.css file, visited links get the same color as unvisited links:
a:link {
  color: #235c96;
  text-decoration:underline;
}

a:visited {
  color: #235c96;
}

a:hover {
  color: #235c96;
  background: #CCCCCC;
}
This is number 3 among the top 10 mistakes in web design by Jakob Nielsen. Therefore, I would recommend to simply remove this a:visited statement for visited links for the default theme. Alternatively - if you want to have the same color on all browsers - you could use the value #551A8B, which Google seems to use on its result pages.
I wouldn't remove a:visited so it can be customized. Changing the value as you suggest sounds ok to me.
