#2569 closed defect (fixed)

Support Forums: No visual indication for visited links

Description

At the moment, regular and visited links are displayed in the same color.

Is that intentional, or just something we didn't get around to fixing yet?

Before the upgrade, visited links were displayed in a different color, and bbPress 1.x used to append ?replies=X to topic URLs so that topics with new replies were no longer marked as visited.

At the very least, we should be using the -visited variable.

Right now we're using the WP blue for the links. I tried adding the Medium Blue as the visited color and it looks something like this:

Top two links are "visited" while the bottom two are default. My assumption here is the two blues we use are not contrasting enough for text?

Contrasted with the footer links which still use an older blue.

2569.diff seems like a good first move here, I'm not sure why we're overriding the global wp4 styling though.. If we want to change link colours site-wide for consistency, we should just rely upon it's colours.
