Linking to a phone number

Link to a phone number to encourage visitors to call you. When someone taps this link from a smartphone, it will prompt them to call the number.

You can add these links to:

  • Text
  • Your site's navigation
  • Images
  • Buttons

As an example, this guide walks you through creating a text link, but you can find steps for adding links to other areas in Adding links to your site.

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

  1. 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.
  2. Highlight the text.
  3. Click the link icon in the text editor toolbar. The link editor will open.

Once the link editor is open: 

  1. Click the External tab.
  2. Enter tel: followed by a phone number, without any spaces. If the number includes a country code, add tel:+ followed by the phone number.
  3. Press Enter to close the link editor.
