How to protect specific HTML tags and Gutenberg blocks?

The Interlinks Manager plugin gives you the ability to not apply the automatic internal links on the selected HTML tags and Gutenberg block.

Protected Tags

To modify the list of protected HTML tags proceed to the Interlinks -> Options -> Advanced menu and then use the Protected Tags option to add or remove specific HTML tags.

The following HTML tags are included in the default list of protected HTML tags:

  • h1
  • h2
  • h3
  • h4
  • h5
  • h6
  • a
  • img
  • ul
  • ol
  • span
  • pre
  • code
  • table
  • iframe
  • script

Please note that by protecting non-void tags, you prevent any nested element from having applied automatic internal links.
