If you have the old version of my add-on installed that functions in a similar way, please first uninstall that before installing this one.
This add-on allows you to choose usergroups which will no longer have the "nofollow" attribute set on URLs. You can choose the usergroups in Admin CP > Options > Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
What is "nofollow" and why is it set?
A normal URL in HTML looks like this:
<a href="http://xenforo.com">XenForo - Compelling Community Forum Software</a>
This makes posting URLs on your site very attractive to spammers. That's why XenForo does this to URLs in all signatures plus any posts by non-moderator / non-admin members:
<a href="http://xenforo.com" rel="nofollow">XenForo - Compelling Community Forum Software</a>
So why this add-on?
This add-on allows you to specify other usergroups (aside from Administrator and Moderator) who don't have "nofollow" set on URLs they post.
You may have privileged usergroups either by Promotion or Upgrade such as trusted members, other staff members/contributors, featured bloggers, partners who you may want to grant this privilege to.
HOW TO INSTALL
The easiest way to install this add-on is if you use the Add-On Installer.
- Download the zip file.
- Extract its contents to your hard drive.
- Upload the contents of the upload folder to the root of your XenForo installation.
- Complete install via the Admin CP using the provided XML file.
