Avoid formatting of links? Edited


How do I avoid automatic formatting of links? 

What I do 

In any confluence or jira text edit box, I type in a link (eg 

(Strangely enough not here???)

What happens

The link automatically change formatting to the title of the webpage (in this example: Save the Children International)

What I want

In general I'm happy about the change-to-title, but sometimes it doesn't make sense, and just confuses the reader. 

I want the ability to type a url, which DOESN'T change to the title of the webpage. 

What have I tried

but that is (as you see...) not optimal.

Our setup

We are running on Confluence 1000.0.0-e79a218a670b (Cloud)

Hi @Rasmus Vedel 

Hi have a page called "Date Picker". When I copy the link and paste it to another page, it's changing to the title "Date Picker".

Select "Display as Link" to show the link. Or change the text which should be displayed in the edit options.

Hope this helped you.

Regards, Dominic
