How-To: Disable automatic links between Moodle 4 resources within a course - Faculty
By default, Moodle will automatically create links to named resources within a course. In other words, if you create a resource and then use that resource's name elsewhere in the course, Moodle will automatically create a link between the name text and the resource. This is called "Resource name auto-linking."
Follow these steps to disable this default setting.
