    How can I add "nofollow" to PhpBB forum posts? In fact, I don't know how to add nofollow at all.

    phpbb2? phpbb3??

    bb3 is in viewtopic.php

    find
    $message = bbcode_nl2br($message);
       $message = smiley_text($message);
    Code (markup):
    after add
    $message = preg_replace('/(class="postlink")/','class="postlink" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"',$message);
    Code (markup):
    That will also open links in new window

    Andrew,
    Thank you very much for this code. It's helped me a lot. I've tweaked it slightly to allow for the decent users on my forum. I'll trigger it if users have posted less than a certain amount.

    	if ($user_cache[$poster_id]['posts'] < 75)
    	{
    		$message = preg_replace('/(class="postlink")/','class="postlink" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"',$message);
    	}
    Code (markup):
    Obviously the way to go would be to have this value accessible via the admin panels but for now it does the job.

    Thanks again
    Steve

    That's exactly what I have been searching for! Only one question: Is it possible to add the nofollow-attribute just on external links? I'm afraid adding it also on internal links might give trouble with search engine spiders. Thanks!

    I love the update for allowing the no-follow to only be active for users with a minimum post count, but it still allows do-follow links in signatures. Does anyone know how to do the same thing for user signatures?
