Continuing the discussion from How to COMPLETELY disable all Rust safety checks?:
In the above-linked topic, @scottmcm reminds us that Discourse puts nofollow attributes on all user-posted links.
This is a sensible default setting, to prevent spammers from abusing our forum to harvest “link-juice”.
- Whitelisted domains (and subdomains) - admins can whitelist the domains they wish to associate with their site, and should include the domain of their own site.
For doc.rlo, this will make sure that documentation pages that are often linked (and thus apparently hard to find by searching/valuable/worth discussing/etc.) float more to the top of future user’s search results, thus helping them before they even ask a question here.
(Edit: added Wikipedia link for “nofollow”, for the (common?) case people don’t know what it is)
