How to make redirects turn green so you can see them

Links that are redirects are blue, making them indistinguishable from regular links.

Are you tired of clicking on links to check to see if they are redirects?

If so, you can turn them green by copying and pasting the following code into your your vector.css page:

/* Turn redirects green so that you can see them */

.mw-redirect {
color: #006633;

.mw-redirect:visited {
color: #009900;

.mw-redirect:hover {
color: #990000;

.mw-redirect:active {
color: #990000;
