I use the \tt in the latex, however, it can not break line automatically. Then, I add \\ in the link, e.g. \tt{http://tex.stackexchange.com/ \\\\ questions/ask}. Then, in the generated pdf file, it seems I can not click the link and jump to that website.

It seems \url can break line automatically, however, it use package hyperref. This package will add the citation a colored box. This is what I should avoid.

So, do you have any suggestion to use \tt?

  • Welcome! \tt is deprecated. In general, you should use \ttfamily or \textt{} instead.

    So basically, you want to use hyperref but hide the boxes around the links? If so, don't use the "hackish" method you're using, Use hyperref and load the hidelinks option. See: tex.stackexchange.com/q/823/4778

If you use \url from the url package it just enables line breaking without any links.
