noindex Profile Pages, Internal links rel="nofollow" question

Hello community,

After a few weeks of using Vanilla forums, I have noticed that google has index profile pages. What method would anyone suggest that I can add a noindex meta tag or code to profile pages.

Also, I moved from Phpbb3, and one of my forums linked other pages on my website... now, all my internal links in those discussions have rel="nofollow" automatically. Is there a way to prevent rel="nofollow" with internetal links, but keep them for external links?

I am currently using the Embed-Friendlyversion 1.0 Theme.

Thank you for your time.

    Does anyone know how to resolve this?

    I am also in the same situation - wanting to noindex the profile pages.

    Google Panda is forcing websites to reduce the number of low quality pages from their websites. It is extremely important from the SEO perspective that you take down the low quality profile pages from Google index.

    Where to add noindex?
    Please help.
