No follow all external links

Hi, First of all Great Plugin.

Is there a way to make all external links (only from forum) nofollow, target_blank by default?

Any help is much appreciated.

Hello @sureyea

Unfortunately Asgaros Forum does not have any impact on how links get added. The forum uses the default WordPress-editor for creating posts. Maybe the link-behavior can get changed with another plugin like the following:

I really like this forum plugin! It is easy to use, simple and well compatibility with my theme.

I met two main problems when using it:

  1. My users may insert/upload some photos about genital herpes, so I don't hope them to do this by inserting the image. I hope they can only upload photos, this way I can control to show photos to logged-in users only. (https://www.asgaros.de/support/topic/possible-to-disable-insert-image-link/)
  2. I really hope to nofollow external links without extra plugins, this is very important for SEO.

I searched the forums, found that you have given related solutions to these two problems. But, these solutions are not very easy for me. Can you do something to make the changes easier?

Thank you very much!

Hello @tedh

I suggest you to check out editor-extensions for WordPress which allows you to modify the behavior of the WordPress editor which is used by Asgaros Forum. The forum-plugin just uses the functionality provided by WordPress which can be modified by other extensions.

The code in the link you have posted should still work fine. You just have to add it to the functions.php-file of your theme.
