      There is a check box here on HP that is checked when you comment...to NOT follow, uncheck the box...

        Actually, the check box is in the forum as well... "Follow this forum topic" has a check mark in it.  To NOT follow, once again, uncheck that box.

          Dale, Tamron is referring to the quality of backlinks to pages and websites, not to actually following a particular forum topic.

      Try viewing the source of the comments page.  Scroll down until you find the link, and look for the presence or absence of the "nofollow" attribute.

    Would that be true on other sites like blogger.  I removed the no-follow code in my template but I can't tell if its do-follow or not

    highlight the link and then right click after which you click on option check source. You will see that the source of that link will either have a ref=follow or 
    ref=nofollow.

    This will determine either the link is a follow or not. Another way is through a chrome extension named Astral no/dofollow. If you are using chrome install this extension and whenever you hover over a link it will show you either it's dofollow or nofollow.

    Right click and view source code and then do a CTRL+F and type in nofollow. If nothing comes up, the page is dofollow.

    OR you can do the easy thing and download SEOquake. It automatically puts a line through all nofollow links, and leaves dofollow links as normal, for easy differentiation.

    The best one is NoDofollow Firefox Addon for checking nofollow links on any site...

    Apart from NoDofollow, my top 3 addons for SEO: SEObook, SERPTreds.com, SenSEO
