XF 1.5 Disable link conversion

Where would I go to disable this new feature? Most of my users have complained about it because they either have to hover over it to see if the link is legitimate or the thread starter has to paste the link twice to prevent that problem.

Thanks

Even with link conversion switched off, users should hover and check (press and hold on a touch device) before clicking to see if a link is legitimate, as even 'genuine' ones can be false.

For example, this link to the BBC website actually goes to YouTube.

That's very true and I didn't think about it. For future reference, where can I find this option to my initial question?

Worth noting it's off by default so you must have switched it on already...

It's in the Messages group in Options.
