WordPress Tutorial: Linking to an Email Address


Written by tim on August 6, 2013

How To Add an Email Link in Word Press

  • Login to the Dashboard of your WordPress site.
  • Go to the pages section and select the page you want the email link on
  • Place your cursor inside the visual editor window where you want the link to be
  • Type out Email Me or the email address as seen in the example below:
    For more information E-mail me at: [email protected]
  • *Note you can use what ever text you want for the email link but typically you see the email me text or the email address as the click-able link.
  • Now Highlight what you would like the link to be and go to the link button
  • *(The link button is the connected chain link icon above in tool bar, located to the right of the alignment buttons)
  • By default the link box window that pops up will be auto filled with http://, Erase this and instead type in mailto: followed by the email address, *(with no spaces as in the example below),  then Click Add Link
  • Example: mailto:[email protected]
  • Click the Update button on the page and then click View Page button and test click the new email link in your browser.  It should open a new email message window with the linked email address in the send to line.
  • * How it will look for your visitors depends on how they have their local email service setup on the device they are using when clicking your link.

Gecko Designs was a pleasure to work with while building out a brand new website. They understood what we were after and had creative and useful ideas to help us reach our goals for the website and for our organization. Communication was friendly and reliable throughout the process and they were available to troubleshoot any issues that arose before we went live, and after. Highly recommend!

Gabriel at Gecko Designs has proven over and over again that he and his team offer an incredible product to their clients (me!). I've been thrilled by his communication, the products they offer, and their responsiveness to my requests. Anyone looking for a website, logo, etc.. would be making a no-brainer decision to do business with Gecko Designs.

From intro meeting to final website, this was a great experience. Gecko created exactly what I was looking for, and was very timely and affordable. Great collaboration, lots of changes, and they made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I could not recommend more.

Our non-profit organization can't find enough adjectives to describe the top-notch, professional, and amazing work Gabe and his team provides. They have been amazing supporters of our organization from answering simple quick questions, to volunteering at our events, to helping us with graphic designs and website updates for our biggest event, to helping us with the mother of all projects....redesigning our very outdated website. We are always amazed at how quickly and efficiently they work despite us coming back with little nit-picky changes and requests. We often wonder if we're their only client because they are so quick to respond....but that is exactly how they want you to feel - as if you are their only/most important client. They are always willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done right by taking very careful consideration of their clients' needs, wants, and desires, and end up producing work that is nothing short of brilliant.
