How to remove nofollow links from Vanilla Forums

Hello there,

I use Vanilla Forums on my site and I noticed the external links are always no-follow. Is there any way to remove that? I couldn't find the option in the administration dashboard, so I guess it is hard coded in.

    You can remove these nofollow links by opening this file: /library/core/class.format.php

    Around line 30 you will find:

    public static $DisplayNoFollow = true;

    Change true to false, so it looks like:

    public static $DisplayNoFollow = false;

    Be warned that you will likely see an increase in spam from this change.

  • Great thanks. This worked perfectly
