This simple plugin adds two new WordPress admin color schemes. The colors are the same as the built-in Blue and Grey schemes, but with an additional color for visited links. This makes it easier to keep track of which dashboard news items you have and have not already read.
- Upload the

- Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
- Go to Users->Your Profile and select one of the new Admin Color Schemes in the Personal Options section.
- Why did you choose that color for visited links?
I used the same color the built-in color schemes use for when you hover over a link.
- Will this still work with WordPress versions 2.5 and 2.6?
Nope, and it never will. You really should upgrade WordPress anyway to keep your site secure.
- What about WordPress 2.7 and up?
It might work. I listed the plugin as requiring at least WordPress 3.0 because I have not tested older versions.
