I have a number of wordpress blogs on my PBN and for some reason over half of them are posting nofollow links in the posts

I have tried using the same theme as one of the blogs that does not do this but that didnt work

I have checked robots.txt and htaccess file but all look fine

I have deleted plugins and that didnt work either

I post on the sites using fcs networker but I dont think that is the problem

Ideas anyone?

When you add a link in a wordpress post there is an option for setting the links "nofollow" did you try to remove that?

The only option it gives me is to open in new window

On the edit screen, the html does not show the nofollow attribute, but once posted, it shows on the source code for the page. So something seems to be changing the link to nofollow after I have posted

found the problem :)

For some reason, there was a plugin called "wp-spam-shield-pro" installed that only showed in the plugins folder (not shown in wordpress dashboard). Once I deleted the folder, the no follow attribute was removed

Not sure why it was in there as I have never installed that plugin
