Email link to email addess

It'd be great to have your email address clickable so anemail form pops up when you click on that.

 

Thanks.

Hi, there!

 

You should be able to link your email address! When you have typed your email address into a text box, highlight it and select the Link function from the formatting options. You should see the email address option in the Link function options. Once you enter the email there, people will be able to email you by clicking on your email address in the text.

 

Please let me know if this doesn't work or if you were thinking of a different scenario.

 

Thanks, and enjoy your day!

I have tried to do this also, but there isn't a formatting box that shows up??

Hi @TWOMS,

 

When you highlight the text that you want to make the link to your email, the bar should pop up right above it. What is happening when you highlight the text? 

 

If you try it and it works, perfect! If not, let me know what browser and internet connection you're using, and we'll troubleshoot from there.

My link button is linked to my email address as in the tutorial but when clicked it does not open the email page. Rather frustrating to offer something on my pages that doesn't work. Customers could give negative feed back and may not even come back to me

Hey @RGBCltd! Your email button works as expect for me when I click it. It sounds like your browser or computer does not have a default email program set up (or you use Web-based email and don't have a program installed).  In order for the button to work like you're expecting, a person needs to have one set up as a default email program.

I'm experiencing the same problem... the promp to attach an email is given along with a button that says UNLINK but upon entering the email ... the email link isn't working.  Upon going BACK into the LINK to unlink it... the email doesn't exist
