Fixed my template!

Apologies to everyone if your browser has been freezing whenever you visit this site. It's been happening to me ever since I installed the current template and added a few customizations. Basically, I messed up the code, so whenever a web browser would try to make sense of it, for a short while, it would use up all available memory on a visitor's PC and effectively freeze it for 20-30 seconds. Please accept my heartfelt apologies.

I've been wracking my brain over what the problem was. Well, I found it quite by chance, when I checked my template, in order to customize a new widget. The problem was caused by a portion of code relating to the colour of visited links. I changed the original font colours for the template. The portion of code in the original template read:

Variable name="visitedlinkcolor" description="Visited Link Color" type="color" default="#ffffff" value="#ffffff"

- white text throughout.

I didn't want all the text the same colour, as I wanted links to stand out. So I decided to change the link text colours. So I edited both the main link colour and the visited link colour. The edited code should have read:

Variable name="visitedlinkcolor" description="Visited Link Color" type="color" default="#cc7acc" value="#cc7acc".

But Stoopid here got a bit sloppy with the coding, and it actually read:

Variable name="visitedlinkcolor" description="Visited Link Color" type="color" default="#ffffff" value="#cc7acc".

This little discrepancy is what threw everyone's web browser into a frenzy. It's now fixed!
