We’ve updated the news module to allow searching by tag like many social bookmarking websites do. We’ve also added the rel="nofollow" attribute to all external links to improve SEO. Additionally, we’ve added code to make sure all links are absolute in order to ensure that they work in RSS feeds.
Attached is the new version of the news module. Instructions are in NEWS_MODULES_UPDATES.TXT. We recommend that you update all files if upgrading, unless you’ve made some customizations.
