Prevent Envato product description to convert url to mail:to

I am selling an item on graphicsriver and wanted to include a demo for it.

The website with the demo includes a “@” sign in the url which I assume envato recognizes as a mail address. However it’s not the case.

Is there a way to stop envato from converting the url into a mail:to address?

I’m currently using the following HTML code

<a href="https://simmer.io/@overcrafted/ninja-cats-character-demo"> Ninja Cats Character Animation Demo</a>

So after saving the above code in the item description when I click on it my default email will open or when I hover with the mouse on it the link is changed to

mailto:https://simmer.io/@overcrafted/ninja-cats-character-demo

Hi

Please double check you have inputted
href="https://simmer.io/@overcrafted/ninja-cats-character-demo" and not href="mailto: https://simmer.io/@overcrafted/ninja-cats-character-demo".
You can edit again and make sure you have write link as: href="https://simmer.io/@overcrafted/ninja-cats-character-demo"

Thanks

That is the problem. I am not putting any “mailto:” in front of the link. Envato automatically adds the mailto: in front of the url. I think it’s because the “@”

My only workaround this is to add the url as plain text and not as an actual link.

you can try to use:
&commat;
instead @ character

when i replace the @ character with &commat it cuts the link up to the place of it’s occurence. So https://simmer.io/@overcrafted/ninja-cats-character-demo becomes https://simmer.io/

Seems like envato is programmed this way. No real workaround other than putting the direct link in there. Anyways thank you for the approach.
