    Trying to rehack my pal Jennifer's site using 1st Page 2000 instead of her Netscape Composer WYSIWYG thingie.

    Results so far are encouraging for a couple of newbies, but we can't get rid of a problem where text links that have been clicked go the 'visited link' colour and won't reset.

    This means that when we 'save as' to create another page, the text link shows up 'visited' straight away.

    When we view the page in an external browser, the same thing shows (ie visited link colour) even though the link's never been clicked in that browser.

    Is there any way to reset the link colour?

    Pretty hopeless, I know, but we're learning...

    Are all the links set to href="#" ?? If so, they will always appear "visited" because it's linking to the page you're on!

    Try setting the links to different pages:

    href="this_is_a_page.htm"
    href="this_is_another_page.htm"

    That'll show you the a:link behavior

    Thanks, transio.

    Not sure I understand it at first read-through (had a glass of wine with lunch) but I'll see what's what when I can think straight again.

    They're defined as:
    unvisited - blue
    visited - violet (or some purple anyway)
    active - red.

    Which I seem to think is pretty much the default colours in most editors?

    Thing is, in my WYSIWYG editor, I can't activate a link unless I'm in the browser. With 1st Page 2000, I can click a link in preview (no matter how inadvertently) and thereafter that link stays 'visited' colour, and I can't reset it.

    Does this make sense? (haven't had any wine today, honest).

    no wine eh? are you sure! :speechless:

    that's how it works tho... in you browsers preference you set the history to how many days/months so it keeps the links you visited a different color (if the site uses a different color for visited links)

    now... did that make sense? it should... i don't drink!

    You could clear your cash in IE to see the link as unvisited again.. OR you could download mozilla firefox if you havent already and this extention Web Developer.

    In the image I have attatched, I have highlighted the extra tool bar the extention installs onto firefox. (You can also customize and place the icons on anywhere just like any other icon) One featuer of the extention is there is a place to set all links on a page as visited or unvisited. There is so much more this extention does. I cant imagine not working with it anymore. I highly reccomend you (and everybody else) get ahold of it and play with its featuers.

    As far as I know IE does not have an extention that offers similar functionality.

    How come I can't download new extensions? They don't list them there.
