In the past week, all links to titled webpages in Trello are shown as titles along with an icon of their host domain – e.g. google docs links show up as *Google logo* Name of Google Document.
I find this feature extremely infuriating since for the purpose of my work, seeing the raw link at a glance is a lot more important than knowing what its meta-name is. Is there any way to disable this feature?
There's a workaround to auto-convert cards from "Link cards" to "Regular cards": add a Butler rule to your board that adds, then removes a label (or a member) to/from the card.
This works, because Link cards can't have labels, members or descriptions.
No promises this will continue to work, but should work for now (we're looking at adding support for Link cards more formally to Butler).
Out of curiosity: why do you want/need to see the URL?
Oh well, that sucks – since I'm not in charge of my board, I was hoping for a user-end solution.
I need to see the URL because I work with a CMS system for a news website and the URLs include info on which section of the website each article is in. When I need to edit an article, I'll have a quick glance at the link in the card to find out which section to open in CMS. I don't need to know the link title since it's already in the card title (and whenever people post links they describe what the link is, anyway). And in some cases I can just glance the ID in the URL to bypass all steps altogether and quickly open up an edit page.
Sure, I can hover over the link to see that info, but that's just an unnecessary extra step.
Besides, I just have a general distaste for all QoL "features" that seek to hide what is seen as "technical" info from users and instead complicate the process further. That, and when cosmetic changes are rolled out without adding a toggle to user preferences >:-(
Very much hoping to see this become a toggleable feature in the near future!
