v7.2 How to hide external link icon?

We just upgraded to v7.2 (yay!) and noticed that our external links (which are actually links to other spaces) configured in the Sidebar and Header are showing with a little green arrow icon. Is there a way to disable/hide that icon?

TIA!

@Megan_Ellis as far as i know the Confluence AUI does not have any icon with that green color

So i believe it is from your website customisation

I suggest you to use custom css to hide it

See this for how to add your custom css https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/styling-confluence-with-css-166528400.html

See this question for something similar https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Display-icon-for-external-links/qaq-p/262851

Your case is pretty similar but doing thing reversely

I figured out that I can just change the wiki markup to point to a spacekey (as described here https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/confluence-wiki-markup-251003035.html) and the icon disappears.

Thanks for your suggestion!
