Hi @Julie Rebarbar 👋

Welcome to the Community! 

There's been a few members raise issues around the smart links so you're not alone in this. I've taken a good look through Trello's available settings and it's documentation but unfortunately there is currently no way to disable this feature. 

A number of members are flagging this issue by raising a support ticket in the hopes that this feature can be tweaked. You can raise a support ticket, upload screenshots, description etc here >>

If you have any other questions let me know 😃

All the best,


This feature is trash and needs to be removed.

If you use backticks around the url it should stay as a url. 

Backticks are make links not clickable anymore. Is there a way to keep entire link visible and keep it clickable?

Capitalize the first letter of the domain works for me.

Actually may be simpler to capitalize the H in https. Just something so it doesn’t match the regular expression

We are using this bypass solution with capital H since May. Is there any possibility that "Friendly links" will be possible to turn off in settings for example?

Like iamchesser likes this

My best suggestion is wait for it to automatically convert to a friendly link, then do ctrl-z to undo.  It should undo the conversion and just leave the full url and as a link.


(p.s. the "feature" is really really really irritating)

Hi, am afraid your solution is not working for me (FF browser). Links in the checklist are not getting changed after I press CTRL+Z.


It is a shame that requests from the users are not taking into account by Trello/Atlassian support.
