This page requires updating for Moodle 2.0. Please do so and remove this template when finished.


Autolinking is a feature of Moodle by which words or phrases used within a Moodle site are automatically linked (by highlighting in grey by default) if there is a content page (or resource or activity or glossary entry) within the site with the same name.

Autolinking can be switched on/off in a site's settings by going to Settings>Site Administration>Plugins>Filters>Manage Filters.

Specific links can be prevented by adding <nolink> ... </nolink> tags around the relevant content in HTML markup mode.

Another way to force autolinking on/off is to use:

  • <span class="link">text</span>
  • <span class="nolink">text</span>
