MQ ReLinks


MQ ReLinks is a wordpress plugin which allows you to easy redirect all external links in posts, pages, comments, author and widget links, without passing link juice.
In stead of a direct link to another site, the plugin will create a link to a out.php file that will redirect to the requested URL. They can be opened in a new window or in the same one.
You can configure the post, comment and author link options in the administration area.

For configuration go to Options>MQ ReLinks

A redirected link will look like this:

Or you can edit it to look like this:

To do so you have to edit the .htaccess file and add a line of code:

RewriteRule ^out/(.*)$ wp-content/plugins/mq-relinks/out.php?url=$1 [L]

right after this part of code:

BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

There are instructions in the administration area
