Entering a click-to-dial number on your website

Have you ever wanted to add a phone number on your website that someone can click on to automatically dial the number? By following the steps below, visitors to your website can click or tap on a phone number which will initiate a call to that number.


Type the number into a Text/HTML module

First, type the phone number into a Text module.

PRO TIP: Creating click-to-dial numbers is especially helpful for people viewing your site on smartphones and mobile devices.

Create a link

Next, create a link as you normally would: Click to highlight the phone number, then click the link icon in the WYSIWYG editor ( pictured below).

Once you click the link icon, the Link dialog will appear. This is where you can define the link's properties. Use the following settings:

  1. Under Link Type, select External.
  2. In the Protocol drop-down, select Other.
  3. In the URL field, enter tel: followed by the phone number you'd like to dial. (e.g., tel:18779321776). Remember to consider country codes if you receive or make calls overseas.
  4. Click the green OK button.
