#2397 closed enhancement (fixed)

Change blue link color in header to match blues outlined in color guide

Description

Right now the blue link color in the header navigation is # 45bbe6 which doesn't appear to be one of our blues.

If we change that blue to # 00a0d2 (which is our Medium Blue), we'll still have a good a11y contrast ratio of 4.93 and it's WCAG AA compliant.

@mapk should someone else be assigned to this since you're not focusing on Meta currently?

Just in case there was a patch needed ( although it's a simple thing ) 2397.diff changes the color as @mapk suggested.

Also in the 'original' color spectrum you can find the :

a:visited, #wporg-footer ul li a:visited {
    color: #4ca6cf;
}

I don't know if you want that changed also into a more medium tone as well, but it will probably affect all the visited links throughout except if they have overrides somewhere else defined.
