Set nofollow for external links in Dokuwiki

Dokuwiki by default doesn't set outgoing links to nofollow, and especially if used as open Wiki, spammers are likely to use the site for their linkbuilding purpose, and the site's PageRank in the process.

Steps

Follow these these steps to disable this feature.

Access the Configuration Manager page

Use the following URL if the link is not available in your template.

You will need to log in if you're not already are.
