    I know I could use robots to solve this problem and in all honesty i probably should. However there are many people out there who simply don't use robots and still post links to sites in development. This leads to google caching the link and sooner or later it arrives on google... its annoying.

    However it is easily solved, furthermore it would make spamming this site with links pointless, thus reduce spam

    Add rel="nofollow" to the bbcode that converts [*URL] and standard URL's into HTML.

    This would not only stop google caching unwanted pages, it will also stop spammers from getting any extra credit with search engines.

    filburt's already implemented a (somewhat more complex, but programmatically much cooler) solution to this problem for WDFv6 :-)

    A sample of such a link:
    Code:
    http://.../out/6yyOupZMiecWWV4n8QyohjcTk2OmhicPT4hNkrqu5qo./7ffB8QW19bGXVJvybAdGvzgdhqZ5JMCHiVAXNG2aits.
    And I'll also add a nofollow to it in addition to the current external, meaning it'll become "external nofollow".
