How can I disable 'Nofollow' for links?

Post by Nyt on July 6th 2014, 4:43 pm

I've done some searches around the forum and I haven't found anything useful. I need to post several links in my forum and these specific links are coming up,target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> I need these specific links to work on my forum. How can I either, disable this function or, find a workaround for this?

The two things I've found on the forum I'll quote here and respond.

Hi,

If it's disabled in the Robots file, which you cannot modify, you cannot unfortunately modify it.
It's located at: yourforum.com/robots.tx


ok, if I can't modify it in that location what/where do I need to do to fix this?

Wait why do you want thenofollowgone? Its a good thing.

Without it, search engine crawlers will potentially see them as spam posts and it will affect your SEO.



Well, for me this is not a good thing. For my forum I care absolutely nothing about SEO and everything about having this option available.





Thank you for your time and helping me with this problem.

I've done both, enter the links without using the 'insert a link' tool and with using the 'insert a link' tool and i get the same outcome.

So when you just enter this: http://help.forumotion.com/ , you get the nofollow? Are you in WYSIWYG mode?

a regular address, like the example you have, works fine but, I have these links that include a - in them. These links are getting the nofollow tag.

What isWYSIWYG mode? It looks familiar but don't know it off the top of my head.
