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.
  1. Launch Moodle ( and open your course.
  2. On the course menu bar, select the More.. menu, then Filters.

  3. From the Activity names auto-linking drop-down list, select Off.

  4. Click on the Save changes button. The "auto links" will now be disabled in the current course.
