Creating an email link is just the same as linking to any page on your website, or any URL. If you simply follow the 4 steps below, WordPress will automatically add in the code for you and create your email link.
- Highlight the text you want to appear as the email link (see below example “email@example.com”
- While your text is highlighted, click the “add link” icon in the toolbar.
- The Insert/Edit link box will pop up. In most cases, it will automatically add the link for you. If it does not, type “mailto:” and then enter in the email address you wish to link to in the URL. Eg. “mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org”. This tells the link that it is an email address.
- Click the blue “Add Link” button.
*note: in this case, you want to make sure the “Open link in new window/tab” is not checked.
