    Hello!

    I just noticed that if I add a rel="nofollow" attribute to an image link (in the <a> tag, not <img>) it gets removed on the front-end.

    I installed Avada on my testing site – just to test the issue – with the plugins disabled, and it happens there too.

    Now, I don’t know JS, but I’m relying on my common sense.

    Avada assigns an event to the images, which I believe is removing the rel="nofollow" attribute.

    If you look at this screenshot, you’ll notice that an event has .getAttribute("href") and .getAttribute("target").

    I’m thinking that if there’s no .getAttribute("rel") (I assume such thing exists in JS), then it ignores/removes it from the image link.

    If someone could tell me how to fix this, it will be greatly appreciated!

    I want to nofollow some image links because they are affiliate links, and I want to apply the best SEO practices and play it safe.

    Here’s a link to one of my posts in case it’s necessary to check things out. You can inspect the affiliate banner at the end of the post.

    It currently has a rel="nofollow" attribute added in the back-end but doesn’t show on the front-end.

    Let me know if you need more info!

    Thanks,
    Radu

    Hello!

    Just found out that Grandfathered support means that I have free support for (Avada’s) life :D. And when I think that I actually renewed the support once back in February :).

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I’ll open a ticket.
