Slow response
By , for WP 3.9.2

Support seems to be lacking. As of today, 2 out of 9 issues have been resolved in the last 2 months? Seems 30 minutes ago a response was made on post from 1 month ago. Free plugin or not, there are bugs (including getting resolutions). You get what you pay for right?

One of the best plugins
By , for WP 3.9.1

Very nice plugin thank you :)

However, I have modified it to extend its functionality + fix some bugs please check my article here if you want to encrypt your links rather than just encode them which is not secure.

Excellent plugin for ADA accessibility!
By , for WP 3.8.3

Our ADA consultant advised that we add external link icons throughout our site to make it easier to navigate for people with disabilities. This seemed a daunting task until we found WP External links! This plugin has many more features we will probably use eventually, but ADA accessibility was our main goal. Initially, we had a bit of trouble getting the plugin to work out of the box, but it turned out to be an issue with the Nano3 theme that we were able to reconcile. A tip if you use anchor links - the current version of the plugin needs the full URL or it counts the anchor link as an external link. Support was speedy in helping us figure this out. I would recommend this plugin to anyone looking to retrofit their site to be ADA-friendly and automate the process of labeling external going forward.

Love the idea, concept of this plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

However it was adding 7.8 seconds to my sites load time as found by S3 Profiler. If it was fast, more inline with a great number of plugins I'd reinstall it in a second.

The only working plugin i found!
By , for WP 3.6.1

This plugin is the only working plugin i found. It can make all external links even button links nofollow which i didn't find in any other plugin. Its amazing!

Not suitable for MultiSite
By , for WP 3.6.1

Does what it says, but we wanted to use it to force nofollow on all blog posts on a MultiSite and it's not possible since every blog can change its own nofollow settings independently.
