Solved Random Username Colour

Post by Carloss on August 22nd 2012, 12:29 pm

Hi,

I have a couple of users whose usernames are in Red, when everybody else's are in Blue.

They are not members of any special groups, as they are just basic forum users.

Can you explain this?

Can you give me an idea of how to revert them back to Blue.

Regards

Carloss

Forum URL? & the usernames?

Maybe it turns red after you open their link. Its the visited thing.

It's not the hyperlink colour.

You'll notice usernames: Norwich Lad and Chris63 are in red.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Add this to your css & check if it helps.
Code:
a:visited{
color: #ffffff !important;
}

I Didn't see the usernames anywhere.

Tried the CSS and it removed the username altogether. I've now reverted back to the original.

Username Norwich Lad is on the 5th forum down, as the last person posted.

Thanks

Change the color code to something else. It did not disappear. Infact, it must've just merged with the background.

Thanks, that's worked now.

Still have no idea why it happened though.

What does that CSS fix actually do to make it colour the random colour changes?

Regards and thanks for your time.

Just noticed it's changed my Legend to the chosen colour too, so it's solved one problem and now given me another... grrrr.

Any ideas?

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead!
It just means for one browser session, whichever links you clicked will be turned red.

It changed the color for the legend because you visited it.

The best option would be to have the same color for the visited as for the links.
0A3B94
Use that color code.
