This little hack will edit all the URLs within posts and signatures and add a rel="nofollow" attribute to them.

This will do a number of things. First and most notably, it will reduce spammers because search engines will no longer follow these links. It will also stop your pagerank from leeking onto other sites. Also, some people say that adding nofollow to your URLs will increase your Pagerank. This is more of a matter of opinion, make up your own mind about it

Only links posted in posts. Links to your forums, nav bars ect... will not be effected.

I don't think this even works. I just checked the status of my links after implementing this when I selected both 'yes' and 'no' in the options. Both times links remain dofollow.

Stop worrying about whether or not it works and just uninstall it.

To external links only. Meaning that the internal links will be "follow" links.

Anyone know how to do that? Thanks,

Google's explaination..

How does Google handle nofollowed links?

We don't follow them. This means that Google does not transfer PageRank or anchor text across these links. Essentially, using nofollow causes us to drop the target links from our overall graph of the web. However, the target pages may still appear in our index if other sites link to them without using nofollow, or if the URLs are submitted to Google in a Sitemap. Also, it's important to note that other search engines may handle nofollow in slightly different ways.
"Nofollow" provides a way for webmasters to tell search engines "Don't follow links on this page" or "Don't follow this specific link."

I know what nofollow links are. I'm asking if anyone can make it so that if there are links on my forum, to other parts of my own site, that they are follow links. Only the links that leave the forum should be nofollow.

Is anyone able to do this? If not I might have to find another hack. Thanks again in advance.

I installed this before and I have now uninstalled it because it broke my links in my forum descriptions. I had 2 forum descriptions that I had put html links in and this hack broke those.
