One of the best plugins

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

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.

Works great "straight out of the box"

Excellent, simple, and easy to use!

Awesome. Worked the first time.

Hi. Great job. We needed to fix a couple of our 8+ year old sites which had a bit of anchor links for the new Google news settings. Exactly what I needed, and this played nice with my auto-hyperlink plugin to make visible URLs live. SO, kudos!

well done

THE Uber-NoFollow Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

There's quite a number of nofollow / dofollow plugins in the repository.
There isn't another that has such a granular level of control and functionality than this one.

Definitely recommended with all the Google activity around passing (or not passing) PR on your outgoing links.
