Whenever I write some URL in thr editor, this automatically becomes a URL. For example, http://prateek.co.in.

But I don't want this; I want it to appear just as plain text. How can I achieve this?

Edit: Trying out the newly learned feature here - http://prateek.co.in

    You can also make it inline code by wrapping with backticks e.g. http://prateek.co.in but Doorknob's answer is much better. Jun 2 '13 at 12:33

Escape a character with a backslash:

http:\//www.google.com

http://www.google.com

    @PrateekSingla the preview has a bug but it does work. Jun 2 '13 at 12:32
  • @ShaWizDowArd- Why is it not working for me! :( Jun 2 '13 at 12:36
  • @PrateekSingla: Did you read ShaWizDowArd's comment? Even though it appears broken in the preview window, when you post it, it does actually work.

  • @Matt Let me check that over here - http:\//www.google.com Jun 2 '13 at 12:40
  • @Matt - It didn't worked out, I guess. Jun 2 '13 at 12:41
  • @PrateekSingla it works only in posts, for comments there's no choice but add backticks as I described above as comment to your question.. Jun 2 '13 at 12:41
  • @ShaWizDowArd - How can I test that without getting Downvotes for my question? Jun 2 '13 at 12:42
  • @PrateekSingla have 10 reputation points here on Meta (you need one more upvote) then post new answer in the sandbox. Until then you can edit your own question here. Jun 2 '13 at 12:43
