Some devices automatically turn phone numbers into links
If you add a phone number as plain text without linking to it, its formatting will vary across different mobile devices. Some devices automatically detect it's a phone number and show it as a link. To ensure it always displays as a link, follow the rest of this guide.
Step 1 - Add text for the link
- In the Text Block Editor, enter the text you want to link. For example, Call Us or the full phone number. For help adding a Text Block, visit Using the Text Block.
- Highlight the text.
- Click the Link icon in the text editor toolbar. The link editor will open.
Step 2 - Add the link
After the link editor is open:
- Click the External tab.
- Enter tel: followed by a phone number, without any spaces. If the number includes a country code, add tel:+ followed by the phone number.
- Click Add Link.
