Excluding SkimLinks and/or SkimWords from Links, Posts, or Pages

Excluding SkimLinks or Skimwords - By Page

It is possible to selectively turn off SkimLinks or SkimWords by page. You can do this by adding a tag to the page in question.A different named variable is within <script> tags on the page. The following example disables SkimWords for the page it is on:

<script> var noskimwords = 'true'; </script>  

Here are the 4 options to turn SkimLinks and SkimWords, just SkimWords, just SkimLinks or just the Flyover off on a page:

var noskim = 'true';
var noskimwords = 'true';
var noskimlinks = 'true';
var noskimproducts = 'true';

nb using var noskimwords will also turn off the Flyover.


Excluding SkimLinks - Individual Link

 To stop SkimLinks tracking a particular link on your site, you need to include the rel="noskim" tag.

<a rel="noskim" href="http://www.examplelink.com">Example Link</a>


Excluding SkimWords - In Part of Text

It is possible to do the same for certain parts of text on a page, to do this you will need to to utilise html classes:


<p id="example" class="noskimwords"> or <div id="example" class=''noskimwords">

If you have already assigned an element to be a member of a class e.g. class="publisherclass" then this method can still be used. All that is required is for you to add 'noskimwords', using a ' ' (space) as a seperator. to the same class attribute e.g. class="publisherclass noskimwords".
