I tried to make 6 links on my webpage each to a different page, but some are purple and blue?
Can someone tell me why?

Just saying I found a solution. I changed the color of the links. I'm not sure if this is the correct way....

that is how you do it actually @seweed3

You can change the behavior with css:

a:link {
  /* links that are not visited */
}

a:visited {
  /* links visited before */
}

a {
  /* all links, visited or not */
}

Hi, purple links are because you have visited the link before.

A ‘purple’ link denotes “You’ve already clicked on this link”, while a blue one denotes the opposite. Some links that are purple for me are blue for you, and likewise. If you want to blue-ify your links, clear your history, cache and cookies (yum)

@k9chelsea2 Well yeah but that’s not the question
