XF 2.2 Nofollow? someone explain to newbie?


I'm brand new to Xenforo - most of it so far seems pretty straight-forward, but some items I need a little help with.

1) What is "no follow" as it pertains to links posted in threads? Is this something that can be set when posting a link in a post (I could not see how). Or is it an attribute of a link that is set by the owner of the external site that is being linked to?
2) What does "Bypass nofollow" do?

Thanks in advance.


@Brogan does this apply to YouTube links inserted into posts? Are inserted media embedded or linked?

And, how does “dofollow” work in a closed/private forum?

Also a newbie learning a lot. Slowly.
