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.
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:
- Under Link Type, select External.
- In the Protocol drop-down, select Other.
- 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.
- Click the green OK button.
