AndyB submitted a new resource:

Nofollow Manager - Allows managing when the rel="nofollow" tag is used.

Description:

Allows managing when the rel="nofollow" tag is used.

External links posted by other than the admin or moderator will by default always get the rel="nofollow" tag. What this means is Google does not transfer PageRank to these links. Using this add-on you can whitelist any domain so Google will transfer PageRank.

(Example of Options page)

What a great idea!

Thanks, this is a very much needed mod for many who operate multiple sites / domains / sub domains.

I know. But it doesn't add nofollow to moderator links. To get control over posts from my moderators, I would like to have at least one of two possibilities:
- blacklist URLs
- globally add nofollow to all moderator posts (so only admin posts are dofollow)

I'ts easy to do....
inside library/Andy/NofollowManager/BbCode/Formatter/Base.php

find this code
Code:
if ($type == 'internal')
            {
                $noFollow = '';
            }
Change to this
Code:
if ($type == 'internal')
            {
                //$noFollow = '';
            }
That change will make links posted by all members, staff or not, subject to the whitelist only.

I forgot about XF with their do-follow links, what would be nice (after the fact) when posts have
already been created, maybe add an option to click that would run through and auto add
no-follow to links that may have have been missed or created after the fact, oh well,
not a biggie I guess. or does it even matter if the links where posted before or after the addon was installed?
As I have the addon installed now, and looking at a url in bbcode, and
see nothing added showing that it will be posted as "nofollow"

maybe xf should add options to nofollow user profiles and
forum categories, unless there is a reason for this....

I just installed the plugin and added some domains to my whitelist (tested with/without http(s)/www) but still all external links to whitelisted domains look like this:
HTML:
<a href="https://www.google.com/" target="_blank" class="externalLink" rel="nofollow" style="">https://www.google.com/</a>
I'm on Xenforo 1.5.2 and tested with the standard style. Any ideas?

Sorry, my fault. There was a whitespace next to a comma and it didn't work because of that.

Great add-on but unfortunately I'm also having the same problem with 1.58. If I add one URL to the whitelist it works. If I add a second domain (with a comma in-between) then the whitelist no longer functions. Has anyone figured out what is going on here? Is there a particular format I need to follow when adding more than one domain to the whitelist?

Thanks

Yep; I have the exact same problem
The whitelist only works when there is one domain name added. Adding additional domain names separated by a comma result in none of them being whitelisted.
Anyone found a work around?
