    Yeah.

    I identified that all URLs (even mod/admin URLs) were nofollow in Showcase. Thankfully bobster let me loose on his code and basically the code I wrote will check for the option from my add-on. If it exists and is set, then the nofollow attribute will be user group based. If it doesn't exist or isn't set (because the add-on hasn't been installed or configured) then it will now do it the default XenForo way (nofollow for everyone except mods and admins) :)

    Thanks for integrating it into Showcase Bobster :)

    I will be making similar optimisations to XenPorta too.

    [ PLUG] This is already running at XFShowcase.com if you wanted to check it out. We're enabling dofollow URLs for anyone with a verified status. So if you check out the Site Showcase by Evina, you will see it is nofollow as they haven't verified their license with us yet. But if you check out the one by Russ, his links don't have the attribute set because he is part of the Verified usergroup :)

    The update for Showcase has been released.

    If you have this add-on installed, it will additionally control the nofollow attribute in Showcase also.

    Hey I have the selected usergroups to bypass do-follow but every single one of our Signature backinks are still set to NO-FOLLOW but within the post its do-follow.

    How can I make sure that we have do-follow links in our sigs for the usergtoups i choose?

    Slightly different from the previous version, this only works in posts right now.

    Do you actually show signatures to guests? By default, signatures are switched off for guests (therefore there's no benefit to have them do-follow).

    Yes I do show them to guests so search engines can track them, its beneficial for our paid members - I have so many ppl complaining right now.... :/

    What can I do to make this happen real quick?

    I dunno. Install the old version?

    I never stated in the add-on description that it applied to signatures.

    I was under the impression your old mod was out cause it conflicted with uploaded images - and that this was the new updated version. Since it worked with your older mod, why not have that as a option in this one too?

    I would pay to have this changed
