    [Forum] What is this BB Code string?

    Add nofollow attribute to URL BB Code??

    The above is a setting in the BB Code Settings, and under it it says: "If enabled rel="nofollow" will be added to the any anchor tags for an external resource outputted from the URL BB Code."

    Could someone explain to a nOOB what this does and why I would or would not want to use it? Thanks,

    Basically it means that search engines wouldn't visit the link that's in between the bb code url tags. As for why you would want to do that, I have no clue, I've never bothered to enable it So search engines are free to follow any site in the bb code url tags.
