How can you insert a link to slides WITHOUT using the widget connector?

I'm trying to insert a link to a google slideshow, but I do not want the widget connector to embed them into the page, I only want the link to appear. I would prefer not to hyperlink different text because my colleagues will need to copy and paste the URL into a different browser.

Hi @Sam Sosnowski 👋

Welcome to the Community! Echoing @Jasmine Andrews I found pasting the link as 'plain text' worked for me. 

This Confluence support article may also be useful to read - How to Turn Off Autoconvert.

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just shout 😃

All the best,


Hi Sam, can I please check my understanding - you want the URL text to display on the page, and not formatted as a hyperlink?

2 possible ways I can think of:

  1. Use the Code Snippet macro to prevent Confluence from converting it to a hyperlink.
  2. When copying and pasting the URL, choose Paste as Plain Text to force it to paste the URL rather than the page name. Then click on the URL and select Unlink. This method worked for me using Chrome, unsure if it will behave the same if using a Microsoft browser. 

Hope one of these works for you.
