In the past if someone pasted an URL to a comment section (or the issue description field) it would be displayed as an URL linking to the corresponding page - http://example.com
But recently Atlassian rolled out a change that makes "pretty links" - instead of showing the original URLs it gets the page title and displays it as the link to the page. So instead of http://example.com it would show something like Example Website. It's great that this "feature" hasn't been applied to this forum otherwise I wouldn't be able to explain it :-)
Same thing started to happen in Trello recently.
While this seems to look cool, I often need to copy the comments or descriptions from JIRA and paste them elsewhere, and with this change all links become just page titles.
Even if I edit the comment, there's no way to view its original text with full URLs, so there's no way to get the original URLs other than copy-pasting each of them separately which is of course not very good.
I would really like to be able to easily copy the original comment/description text with full URLs or even better - have this automatic conversion completely disabled everywhere in JIRA and Trello. How can I do this?
Hello @Dmitry Beloglazov
Unfortunately not at the moment, this is called "Smart Links"
Here is a suggestion for the option to disable it

What you can do is when adding a comment, add URL as code block
Can't comment there for some reason, it shows a "Communications Breakdown" error.

This doesn't work because I'm not the only one who posts the comment and I wouldn't prefer not to instruct everyone to add URLs in some awkward way.
Looks like I found a bug.
When I opened that URL, I was redirected to this URL: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-72429%C2%A0?error=login_required&error_description=Login+required&state=65e12ff6-ebec-41dd-b428-528f3b81148b
And there I couldn't comment.
When I removed everything starting from %C2 and reopened the page I could submit the comment.
