I recently added a do follow plugin to my site and it worked just fine with 2.3, but today I’ve upgraded to 2.3.1 and absolutely NOTHING is working to keep a comment author’s name linked to their URL. I’ve tried going in and editing the comment to include the URL, but it won’t take. I’ve tried various other do-follow plugins, they don’t help. I’ve deactivated and removed my other plugins. I’ve changed the code in my comment-template.php page, no go.
So I’ve been surfing around and it seems like a popular complaint, wanting to remove the no-follow attribute. Unfortunately, none of the fixes I have found so far have helped me at all. I’ve tried every do-follow plugin I could find, I’ve been reading other support threads here and have tried going in fixing the code – as described in this thread – no fix for this in 2.3.1 apparently. I have deactivated and removed other plugins, I don’t know what else to do, but I really want the no-follow turned off.
What changed between 2.3 and 2.3.1 that could be affecting this?
