Is there a way to paste a link into trello without having it be converted to a clickable link?

Is there a way to paste a link into trello without having it be converted to a clickable link?  I want it to show the whole file path in the description, instead of having it converted to a clickable link.

Hi @Alyssa Davis ,

 

You can simply put the URL between ``

For example: ``https://trello.com/en``.

Edited:  I was wrong that just providing the URL in both parts of the text link syntax would work. But you can put a space after it, which tricks Trello.

If you want the link to be unmangled by Trello trying to convert it into a button or preview, then you need to play a trick on Trello.

Use the markdown syntax for hyperlinks, and put the URL in for the link text and the link.

The format is [Link Text](https://example.com/goes-nowhere)

Use square brackets for the link text, and parenthesis for the URL

If you provide regular link text, like the format example above, then it will just create plain link with that text. 

If you want to have a clickable link and you want to leave it as the actual URL, then put the URL into both parts (between the square brackets and between the parentheses.

However Trello still wants to convert this. So try putting a space after the URL between the square brackets.
