I noticed something giving feedback on a site earlier today or yesterday, and when I went to my own pages, the same thing was happening.
When I click a link on my page, it is BLUE to start. It opens a new tab to where the link is directed. When I close that tab, I go right back where I was, BUT, that link is BLACK, not BLUE. However; if I click anywhere in the content, it changes back to BLUE??
Why does the link do this, and is there a way to eliminate that so it doesn't change colors?

Your links are colored to show unclicked, clicked, and hover.
Unclicked links are raw, unused.
Clicked links means you've been there already.
Hover, shows a different color when you have that option.

Refresh your screen, clear history and your links will revert back to original color.

Think of it when you click "Like". It goes from Blue to black too! I am learning a couple of things from the answers to your questions, Glenn!

That is awesome Jeff.
My only concern was a visitor actually clicking the link, going to one of my internal pages, closing it, coming back and deciding he wanted to go to that other page again. If a visitor does not know this, than the link is harder to find if it is a text link. It just blends in with the other content unless you click somewhere. I just thought somebody may know a way around that...

I am really glad to hear some of the replies I am getting are helping you too 👍👍

Thanks for the interest and request for the update Simone.
All is fine. And Yes, you are so right. The responses I have gotten from my question are Brilliant 👍
I wasn't really looking to fix something, so much as change something if I could.
The responses actually make the issue seem to make whole lot more sense. And the analogies are GREAT 😎😎

Links change colour based on the activities we perform. We each have this on our site. A link that has not been click may appear blue(it may be a different colour on another site). You can set it to change colour, maybe to black or green once clicked and so fort.

Your theme would typically come with this built in.

Hope this helps
