Code block itself is meant to avoid any formatting and render the content as it is. So if you need links inside code block, you may need to use {html} macro and format the content as per your wish.

Hi Renjith,

Thank you for your answer.

I tried the {html} macro but the code block recongizes HTML tags also as part of the code.

For example, say I used this:

{code:XML}
<JMX>
<!--The port RMI registry is exposed-->
<RMIRegistryPort>{html}<A href="http://www.atlassian.com">9999</A>{html}</RMIRegistryPort>

</JMX>
{code}

I have attached a screenshot of what I get.

Any other way we can do this please?

I think Renjith meant "instead of using {code}", use html itself to format the code block

for example, something like this - you'd have to "escape" any characters that would cause the html to render, like the opening < in front of the comment to prevent it actually becoming a comment.

{html}
&lt;pre&gt;
&lt;JMX&gt;
     &amp;gt;!--The port RMI registry is exposed--&gt;
     &lt;RMIRegistryPort&gt;&lt;A href="http://www.atlassian.com"&gt;9999&lt;/A&gt;&lt;/RMIRegistryPort&gt;
  
&lt;/JMX&gt;
&lt;/pre&gt;
{html}

which would render as

&lt;JMX&gt;
     &lt;!--The port RMI registry is exposed--&gt;
     &lt;RMIRegistryPort&gt;9999&lt;/RMIRegistryPort&gt;
  
&lt;/JMX&gt;
