    Distinguish between visited and unvisited links

    I'd like to have some visual distinction between visited and unvisited links on the DiBo. Like in regular HTML where the 'a' element styles have not been overridden to be the same.

    Considering the reading habits I have, it would be easier to spot threads I've previously been reading (interested in) from long result pages.

    If there are posts by me in a thread, the thread icon changes to reveal that but if I'm just been reading, there's no indication.

    Would want to second that, it is most important for me when reading some specific (like private ones), to determine quickly whether there is anything that I should read. Actully focusing on all items takes simply too long.

    What don't you see, all threads clearly indicat if you've read them or not. It is much more apparent now than previously. Are you talking about something else?

    Re: Distinguish between visited and unvisited links

    It's not about read/unread but rather visited/unvisited. Specifically the following CSS in http://www.forum.nokia.com/css/ui.css
    Code:
    a {
    	color: #395796;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	text-decoration:none;
    	}
    	
    a:hover	{
    	color: #395796;
    	text-decoration:underline;
    	}
    specifies styles for all anchor (link) elements and a specialization for hovered-upon lnks. However, there's no specialization for the a:visited property and therefore URLs already visited appear using the same style as any other link.

    This was already an issue with the previous version of FN and I did mention it in some feedback post back then. The version before that had blue color for unvisited and purple for visited links.
