I've created a message board system, and I am using the XMLHttp object to load messages behind the scenes for browsers that support it.
Right now the process is:
1- User clicks on a message link
2- XML object calls getmessage.html which returns the message data
3- A DIV shows the message data through innerHTML.
The problem is, when the user clicks on the link, the browser doesn't consider the link as "visited" even though the "HREF" value of the hyperlink is the same page that the XML object is calling.
Is it possible to tell the browser that I have "visited" a link? I know it's a long shot because of security issues, but I am hoping that someone may have had a similar problem.
Just to re-iterate. I am not looking for alternative solutions. I want to know if this solution is possible.
