      Ok, Thanks!
      All you have to do is go to your forum board settings and change it to remove the "nofollow" attribute from the signature and post links as there is no such thing as a "dofollow" or "follow" attribute. It would be better for my websites if your forum wasnt "nofollow". Good to hear you are going to change it and let me know how it goes.

      I didn't say you weren't, I just said it sounded like it. :p Anyway, do you know if this is a setting in the ACP or something that has to be changed in the forum's code itself? Cuz it sounds like it could be an ACP option but i'm not too familiar with Xenforo so I wouldn't know off the top of my head.

      Nothing in the ACP at present for this setting so it is going to be adding in code to change this :)

      Just as I thought. Might try asking around on XF's support forum if ya can't figure out how to change it hun x. I'm sure someone there knows how it's done properly for better SEO and such.

      Awesome. :) Also hun, I noticed at times when loading the pages on here the layout gets all messed up and such. Was just wondering if that's a host hiccup or XF related?

      In what way does it mess up? Is it images and things missing?

      If so it could have been because I was adding in an addon and it has to rebuild templates and such when installing so sometimes the page can disappear and go white for a short while and then come back again.

      Ah yes. It basically makes the page not load fully or it goes white and doesn't have any CSS to the page. :) That'd explain it. :D

      Same, but for some reason mine isn't showing up properly? I'm using an image as a link. It should be set up right.

      Signatures are added through promotion according to post count.
      The promotion is auto but may have a delay till the next update.
