This is not just a vB issue. Most of the forum software on the web does not support nofollow.
If you are a php programmer, the fix is about 30 seconds. In fact, could a vb operator post a fix for it right here? Change to what script - where?
From vB/Internet Brands:
1.To enable the “nofollow” attribute, go to [Settings] -> [Options] -> [BB Code Settings] -> [Add nofollow attribute to URL BB Code]. 2.In the BB Code Settings, you can also set URL nofollow domain Whitelist. 3.You can also disable any links posted in Visitor Messages by going to: [Settings] -> [Options] -> [User Profile: Visitor Messaging Options] -> [Allowed BB Code Tags in Visitor Messages]. Uncheck “Allow Link BB Code”
