It looks like the popular links are populated once a user clicks on a link for the first time. Can I moderate this? I would like to remove certain links but keep others. I couldn’t seem to find anything from searching.
Hi! and welcome,
I’m not aware of such a feature.
Do you imagine something per topic? Or maybe a parameter like
allowed link domains that would be
excluded domains from popular links (applied to every topic)?
Let’s try adding an external link and then removing it. It will take me a couple of replies, bear with me.
Did you know we grade flour by burning it and seeing what’s left?! Read up on it at
Now I’m going to post this and click that link!
First, I added a link and clicked on it, and then it showed up as a popular link on this topic:
Then I edited the reply and removed the link, and it removed it from the topic listing:
And so the solution to remove popular links is to literally remove the links from the discussion.
If I wanted to remove certain links while retaining the info, I’d add backticks (`) on either side.
I read `https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flour`!
And removes the link from the popular links list.
Hope that helps!
Amazing. Thanks for the help!
