How do I prevent Foswiki from automatically linking WikiWords?

Sometimes you do not want Foswiki to create a link from a WikiWord (a word written in CamelCase).

There are multiple ways of preventing links:

  1. Put a ! in front of the WikiWord
  2. Put a <nop> in front of the WikiWord
  3. enclose a whole paragraph with <noautolink>... </noautolink> tags

I don't know why GuruprasadIyer removed my addition in rev 3. Please explain. Here it is again.

If there are certain words that you want never to be linked (e.g., MacDonald), then consider using TWiki:Plugins.StopWikiWordLinkPlugin.
