rel="nofollow" attribute on links in CMS

Afaict, there's no way to add the rel="nofollow" attribute to outbound links on CMS blog posts. We can do this on regular static links. Can you implement this for blog posts please as otherwise, it affects the site negatively from an SEO standpoint.

    Hi @webflow

    This feature was requested 4 and a half years ago now.

    What is the point of us posting feature requests if you don't even bother to respond to them??? This shouldn't take long to implement, it's a simple feature.

    It's also an essential feature, because without it, we can't link externally without giving away all our link juice to other sites.

    This is basic stuff and webflow won't be taken seriously as a blogging platform without it. Please respond and please implement asap.

    Thank you.

    Hey guys any update on this? Is it in the pipeline? Correct me if I'm wrong but is this not super simple to implement? In the same way as implementing the "open in new tab" button was when building the CMS. If so, it's going to be a HUGE reason why bloggers will never sign up to use Webflow to manage their site.

    This is needed Webflow. Especially for people who manage blogs. The CMS is great, but features like this are important!

    This is a really basic feature for SEO. It's quite inconvenient when essential functionality are missing. It should be implemented ASAP!

    This needs to be implemented ASAP - it hurts SEO and we should be able to have control over this small control.

    The fact that Webflow offers a CMS for people to manage blogs, but does not include nofollow controls is ridiculous. It makes running a blog focused website really useless.

    This is ridiculus that Webflow doesn't support nofollow and other atributes.

    The fact that Webflow offers a CMS for people to manage blogs, but don't include this feature is ridiculous. It makes running a blog focused website almost useless. Unfortunately I've only realised this doesn't exist, only AFTER spending hours crafting my new publishing company website using Webflow. Gutted is an understatement.

    This is needed! Especially after the information on the fact that these links can negatively effect SEO has resurfaced -

    This is a single feature that is preventing us to move the entire blog. Sad to see basic features missing in a paid product for years.
