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 exceeded our expectations in every way with their efficiency, creativity and professionalism...our non-profit hasn't had a fully functional site that we are proud of in years, and not only did Gabe, Grace & the staff at Gecko completely turn this around, they helped us learn along the way. Thank you!

These guys are amazing! Gabe knew exactly where to go in the code and want to fix and had all our issues repaired in minutes! As a previous owner of a software company I would give them the highest rating possible!

Had some updating issues with our website and Gabe provided an expedited response to our situation so we could keep the site up and running smoothly. Additionally, he tweaked a few things he noticed weren't correct so the site would have better SEO. Thanks so much!
