[pmwiki-users] Nofollow in external URLS

Oh, sorry, I hadn't noticed that nofollow applied only to *external*
links. I blame the fact that it was late at night in Europe yesterday...
and also that I had accidentally used a full URL for an internal link in
at least one case.

So I guess this isn't the reason why my site's subpages were almost
impossible to find in Google. I think it is simply because very few
external pages are linking to it.

Anyway, I don't think any of the external links at http://hack.nylug.org
deserved a nofollow tag. This is why I wish I had known about this
feature (which certainly makes a lot of sense for open wikis) earlier.
