Create or enable an option for "No Auto-Link URLs"?

  1. Yes, this should be both global and per-post/response

    It's driving me nuts. I like it about ... half the time, but I'm quite happy to link my own URLs when it's appropriate.

    But if I am trying to explain to someone how to publish PD Consulting and Security - PD Consulting and Security using Web Application Proxy and saying that the reverse proxy needs to listen for PD Consulting and Security - PD Consulting and Security and translate to an internal request to PD Consulting and Security - PD Consulting and Security - well ... thanks XenForo, now stop helping!

    Code:
    Code version of the above so you understand:
    
    But if I am trying to explain to someone how to publish https://pdconsec.net/ using

    Note that using the BBCode editor still munges it - if the text of a URL is a URL, it'll still do the "retrieve page and extract Title" thing.

    I think forcing off everywhere is totally uncalled for, dare I say, uncivilized - but I'd like to be able to tick a box for a specific post or response labelled "don't auto-format URLs".

    So what say you folks?

    Best to use code tags.

    I do not think it is possible to turn it off per post.

    Try putting your links inside the [plain] [/plain] BB code to disable the parsing.

    Ooh, that's a new one on me ...

    Say, that looks promising! Thanks! That should save several brain cells and lots of the remaining hair.
