Follow My Links


Follow My Links is a very simple plugin that prevents WordPress from automatically adding a “rel=nofollow” attribute to the following two categories of authorial links:
1. links in the post author‘s comments;
2. links to the post author‘s URL (usually linked to from the comment author’s username).
