    First normal external links masking plugion for WP!
    1) User see real address in bottom browser status bar: "www.yourblog.com/go/google.com?query=123"
    2) No javascript needed
    3) Masks links everywhere!
    Respect

    Seems cool, I don't know WHY to do this tho? Is it for SEO reasons? Would this really even matter for that?

    Yeah, for SEO. You see, if you post link to some web site, you give him a part of your PR, that's how it works.
    Because of this system, there are many bots, which write automated posts to wordpress livejournals, containing links to their sites. Don't you wanna trick them? :)

    Wanna know more?
    Plugin uses redirect 302 headers - it's absolutely correctly working with all browsers and search systems. The only difference from simple link is that all your links are not External - but Internal, and they aren't taken inaccount when calculating PR.

    No problem. Here's a part of my config:

    .htaccess

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteRule ^goto/(.*) http://$1 [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    
    </IfModule>

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    You have fever, dear.
    There is nothing wrong with it.
    Of cause it uses location headers, how else could it be possible?

    301 Header (temporary relocation) would really mean black seo, but 302 (constant relocation) isn't.

    Please RTFM();

    Great plugin, this will help me improve my PR by not leaking it away. Thanks!

    I rated it 5/5. If more people understood PR and how it leaks through external links then this plugin would be much more popular IMO.

    Does it redirect ALL external links or is their a way to specify which ones? I would love all the links in the posts and comments handled this way but want to leave my template, widgets...etc as "normal" external links. Is it possible?

    It only masks links in posts, comments and etc.
    There is no way I can mask link in your widget or template =)

    Hi all,
    I installed the Plugin: WP No External Links on my blog to see how it worked. The thing is that when I deactivated it, it left all of my links with the "no follow" tag.
    How can I fix this?

    Thanks

    Plugin only masks links on output.
    It DOES NOT CHANGE anything in the database.
    If you uninstalled plugin, IT CAN'T ADD ANYTHING.

    WordPress natively sometimes adds nofollow to links, or possibly you have some other plugins, processing links.
