My External Links are all No Follow

Post by Garv » Mon Dec 07, 2015 12:39 pm

I am running legacy 1.0 and every time I put a link in an article, it is no-follow. I thought the default was supposed to be follow, but mine is just the opposite.

Is there a way to fix this? I want the default to be follow.

Thanks.

Most likely there is a plugin that is running that is causing this issue (changing all the links to nofollow) - check your plugins in order to find the culprit.

I have been through every single module and plugin and can't find anything. I tried installed marco's nofollow and set it for strip nofollow but the external links are still no follow. This is the weirdest thing. Any other ideas?

Also I had used Scribol at one time but even though I disabled their plug in, their ads still show after an article. Any ideas on how to get rid of that? The site is thegarv.com

Thanks
