Published AkashaCMS-External-Links, adding "rel=nofollow" and icons to outbound links


Date: July 3, 2017

It's now required that outbound links to sites that pay money (e.g. affiliate marketing) be marked with rel=nofollow. Your visitors might feel comforted being informed that a link leads to an external site, and perhaps to know what site that is.

The new akashacms-external-links handles both those cases and more.

At the moment its features are:

  • Add target=_blank to outbound links
  • Add the destination site favicon to outbound links
  • Add a simple icon next to outbound links (this and the favicon support are mutually exclusive)
  • Control which sites get rel=nofollow based on domain name
