Description Kim Nevelsteen 2005-08-29 06:15:43 UTC
The article given in the URL field should explain this enhancement idea to stop
spammers from getting higher google rankings through wiki sites.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-08-29 06:17:01 UTC
rel="nofollow" support was implemented last January, is on by default since 1.4beta6.
Comment 2 Kim Nevelsteen 2005-08-29 06:28:46 UTC
I didn't see it in the HTML for external links in the page source, so maybe you
implemented it through CSS. Sorry to bother then.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-08-29 06:30:47 UTC
If you're looking at, it's off on that particular site due to a public vote, as 
apparently people enjoy spam and actively support spammers there.
Comment 4 Kim Nevelsteen 2005-08-29 06:33:50 UTC
Yes, that's the one. Ah, good to know. Mightily strange.
Have a nice day.

I have got errors on my own server about the following wiki page:

Since i am not owner of that wiki site, the only thing i could do is delete the entries, but they just come back every 5 minuts.
On my server (which has nothing to do with this wiki site I get the following error:
[Thu Apr 14 03:50:14 2011] [error] [client] e, referer:

I do get hundreds of this a day and i don't know what is going on and/ or how to avoid it.

I don't know if this is the correct place for this but i couldn't find any better.

Re-closing. Please don't report problems by reopening completely unrelated bugs.
Comment 7 daniel 2011-04-14 13:11:02 UTC
Sorry about that, I am totally new to wiki.
