After reading Halfdeck’s post about Third Level Push, which Roy pointed me at, I decided to add the necessary code to the Robots Meta plugin, since the code example Halfdeck gave was for an older version of WordPress (the
wp_list_cats function he uses was deprecated in WordPress 2.1).
It’s quite easy, you check the appropriate box and it nofollows the category listings on either the single posts or the single pages. With that, another thing I’d been working on, suggested by Michael Gray, made it to release as well: the latest version supports editing of your
robots.txt from within WordPress, if you’ve made the file writable.
I’ve also moved over to the WordPress.org plugin repository to handle the downloads, subversion etc. for my plugins, because this will allow for auto-update notification starting with WordPress 2.3 as well. So to download, you should go here.
