    From what I recall, Wordpress' comment tags are nofollow by default.

    When I add links to a blog post or to a page, I usually just edit them directly in the html to add/remove the nofollow.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    It's not very clear what you want to achieve to me. In blogging terminology, a WordPress page is a static content page such as the Privacy Policy, or contact us page etc. The posts are the other pages with comments where the links in comments are no-follow by default. If you want to make specific links in your posts or pages nofollow, then you can manually add rel="nofollow" as an attribute to the hypertext link. Or if this is too technical, then I guess a plugin may be the best option.

    It saddens me as a coder to see plugins replacing the need for basic webmaster knowledge.

    ok, there seems to be no standard feature within WordPress to make the link to a "page" nofollow unfortunately. So it looks like you need a plugin (like Bogart mentioned above) or hard code the links into your template.

    Any links to the "about us" or the "privacy policy" will need to be coded into your theme (edit your template where you navigation to those pages exist).

    You might also consider just removing ALL links in the template to those page (or add a disallow to those page in the robots.txt file).
