Respect "rel=nofollow"

Does Batch Wizard have an option to respect "rel=nofollow" when crawling a website? If not, this would be a great feature to add.

Hello,

Not directly but you may be able to write a user function to do what you want.

You can exclude targets from being checked if you know which links or can match them with a regular expression. See this documentation page for onTargetCanAdd():
https://www.htmlvalidator.com/2019/docs ... canadd.htm

You can also abort a validation if CSS HTML Validator sees "rel=nofollow".

Can you give me more details as to what exactly you want to do and what you want CSS HTML Validator to do when it sees a document with rel=nofollow?

Thanks for the advice, I'll see what I can come up with! I'm not the OP, but that'll help.
