Hi, Is there an automatic way to find redirects from a large list of wikilinks by visualizing them? -- Kim van der Linde at venus 13:12, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Found a solution using customized CSS. Go to "My preferences", click on the tab "Appearance", and click the "Custom CSS" link behind the skin you use. It opens a page, and you can add there the following code:

.mw-redirect {
    color: #006633;
.mw-redirect:visited {
    color: #009900;
.mw-redirect:hover {
    color: #990000;
.mw-redirect:active {
    color: #990000;

Change the color codes if you want. Save the page, and reload with the instructions at the page so to force the new CSS to be included. It will show redirects as green links.-- Kim van der Linde at venus 14:07, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Here's a neat script to put in your monobook.js:
It adds a 'redirects" tab which turns all green whenever you want. This way it's not all the time (unless that's what you want). Rocket000 (talk) 15:16, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
