Email, Links

Links »Contact Links

We don’t recommend creating contact links because spammers often use scripts to scrape web sites looking for email addresses or phone numbers. If you create this kind of links, you may see an increase in spam. We recommend using a contact form instead.

Another alternative is to put the email address or phone number on your blog with spacing or by spelling out the symbols.

Examples:

example at myblog dot com or example @ myblog . com

If you would still like to create an email link, you can with the following HTML:

<a href="mailto:me@myblog.com">Email me!</a>

You can type that code into the HTML editor or into a text widget and customize it accordingly.

Most modern mobile phone browsers include the ability to call a number directly from a website via the Click to Call feature. Not all browsers automatically turn the phone number into a clickable link, though, so it’s good to specify the number in your site’s HTML to ensure this will work.

Ex: your phone number is +1 (333) 333 4444

<a href="tel:+1-333-333-4444">+1 (333) 333 4444</a>

Always use the international dialing format in HTML.

You can type that code into the HTML editor for a Post or Page or also into a text widget.

You can also add a WhatsApp link to your site which will allow readers to send you a message using that app on their smartphone, or via the WhatsApp Web service on their computer.

Ex: your phone number is +1 (333) 333 4444

<a href="https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=13333334444">Send me a WhatsApp message!</a>

As with the other links in this page they could be used in pages/posts, adding these codes to the HTML editor or also in a Text Widget or Custom Html Widget.

If you want to add a link opening a Skype call, we can use this HTML code:

Ex: your Skype username is “skypeusername”
