Hi @Kevin Pacheco


Trello will automatically convert some content as you mentioned with Markdown, a simple language to format text. You can't disable it completely, but you have workarounds to remove it as explained in this page.

For instance, to avoid being converted into a link to, you shoud add three backticks (```) at the beginning and end of the block of text.


Let me know if this helps,
