Description

Links created in "Links" in the admin should have their XFN data appended in a rel attribute. Kinda like the Auto XFN-ify plugin.

But more importantly (and simpler), if a link goes out to a domain different from the one hosting wordpress, rel="external" should be added.

  • Keywords external links rel xfn removed
  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Safe to say wontfix due to lack of traction here (and the feature is now hidden). Could be a cool plugin for the 11 people still using XFN :-)
