[Plugin: Robots Meta] nofollow typo causes tags to be followed and indexed (2 posts)

    "Nofollow the links to your tag pages

    If you've decided to keep your tag pages from being indexed, you might as well stop throwing link-juice at them on each post..."

    This is actually broken if you look at the source of a post:

    Sample from mine:

    <div class="postmetabottom">

    <div class="tags">Tags: Action,

    As you see, it actually puts rel="no follow tag" instead of putting rel="nofollow".

    This explains why all my tags are being indexed by Google despite my best efforts to prevent it.

    Hope to see this fixed.

    Thanks!

    edit: duplicate post, sorry.

    well i guess you can't "see" it because I forgot to use the code tags.

    here:

    <div class="postmetabottom">
    
    <div class="tags">Tags: <a href="http://www.test.com/home/tag/action/" rel="nofollow tag">Action</a>,
