Duplicate Selective rel=nofollow link, based on Usergroup


Well-known member
@Chris D wrote a great add-on, I was wondering if this can make it as default feature in XenForo.
This should stop self-promoting links, right @Mike? :)
If is not too fancy coding, it will be great if we can have it in 1.4 release.

Quick reference to this unorthodox modification:
# sed -i 's|externalLink|externalLink" rel="nofollow|' /library/XenForo/Helper/String.php

Self promoting links are already prevented.

All non admin/moderators users are always nofollow on links they post.

My add on actually allows you to remove nofollow for some groups of people.
