Description Stephen Bain 2007-01-24 11:58:43 UTC
There is the wgNoFollowLinks setting to add rel="nofollow" to all external
links, but no option to do the same for interwiki links. I have a patch to
implement this which will shortly be forthcoming.

Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-01-24 16:48:51 UTC
Untrusted sites should not be in the interwiki table, probably, hmm?
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-01-24 22:27:27 UTC
It makes no sense to do this.

new version of patch with option to apply nofollow only to nonlocal interwiki links

This patch gives two config options: one which, if enabled, applies nofollow to
all interwiki links; the other which, if enabled, applies nofollow only to
nonlocal interwiki links (ie, to interwiki prefixes with iw_local set to 0).
Comment 5 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-08-27 17:01:59 UTC
I concur with Brion and Rob.  This isn't particularly useful for core: more option clutter for no good reason.
