Why are some of my hub titles appearing in purple?
It doesn't seem to be anything to do with their age as some are older and one was only published yesterday. There does not seem to be an explanation in the list at the bottom of the page.
Hi, Bronwen. I have noticed this, too. The ones in purple seem to be hubs that I have recently interacted with in some way: an edit or comment, for example. I'll be waiting with you for an answer.
I think they are purple because you clicked that link recently. This seems to be the same thing as google searches where a link you already clicked is purple and the ones you didn't click are still blue.
Thanks for this question: I have noticed that 2 of my Hubs are in purple and several traffic web addresses are in purple. I check back for the answer.
Its not only hub titles, but anything you clicked on recently turns purple. I was going to ask this question a few days ago when I 1st noticed it.
Nothing bad seems to have happened to our hubs, so I guess it's OK. Thanks for all the helpful ideas.
I don't have the answer, but I am curious. I'll keep checking back to see if there is an answer posted. It doesn't seem to have any adverse affect however, which is good since a few of mine are purple.
I noticed that too and will keep checking this question for more answers. Thank you BlossomSB for raising it.
I was hoping HP would respond to this. I am seeing the same thing in some that I have recently edited.
You know, it's just because you viewed your hub, I don't think it necessarily means anything wrong, but its my favorite color, what could go wrong with that? Lol
There's no problem. Links that are clicked on will turn to a purple text form indicating that they've been clicked by you before. It will remain this way for your entire internet browsing session or perhaps even longer until you've cleared the cache and cookies.
I wonder how long it takes if one does not 'clear the cache and cookies?' I don't even know what computer cookies are! I can clear up the ones at home quicktime!
Cookies are encrypted information saves like when your browser asks to save a user name and password. Cache is where frequently visited pages are stored. The links become purple and your computer will load a webpage from Cache if there an no changes.
Thanks for the question. I have been wondering this, too. So glad someone had a logical answer!
thanks for the question. i too have noticed this and glad some one asked the question and thanks for the answer too

I've noticed that of the titles in the list of articles on the "My Account" page, some are purple; others are still blue. Likewise some of the titles of forum posts and Q&A...Is there any significance to this, or just a design change being implemented in stages?

Just curious: In look over the list of my published Hubs, I noticed one of them has a deeper blue text on the title than the others. Does this mean anything?? Thanks.

On my account page all my hubs are in purple and one is blue, how come one is blue?I figure this has something to do with links, I know it is not because I clicked on it because that has nothnig to do with it-I have tried and others stay purple after clicking on them.

I've noticed that lately I have just as many clicks but a lot less money; has anyone else noticed this? For example today I got 2 clicks and it only registered 1 penny...what's up with that.Just wondering if anyone else has noticed a difference in like the last month?

I'm a little confused over the coding for our Hubs on our Account Page. I currently have a Hub that is printed in purple (and have different ones printed in purple off and on.) It says this means it is not published but at the same time it has the icon for Featured Article by it. ...
