      Have you resolved it? I would like to try this also but wanted to know if this is working properly or not.

    I usually install SEO Unlimited Plugin and i very like it

  14. Gretchen Louise says:

    This plugin gave me a great display of my outbound links, but none of the actions worked. It was “unable to remove link” and “unable to add nofollow”–basically unable to perform any functions other than showing me my outbound links. I’d love to see an update!

      There might be some permission issues for the plugin. Have you checked if the cache plugin is interfering. Works super for me.
