Learning How To Link To An Email Address In WordPress

Creating a link to an email address allows users to send you an email in no time. If you wanna link to an email address, follow this article.

Adding a link to an email address is similar to adding other links in WordPress. When you add a link to any other web page, you usually add http:// or https:// followed by rest of the url. For example, http://www.example.com

Similarly, you also need to replace the http part with mailto: prefix followed by the email address when you add a link to an email address. For example: mailto:john@example.com

To add an email in a WordPress post, you just select the the text you want to add the link to, then press CTRL+K (Command+K on Mac) or click on the ‘Insert Link’ button in the post editor. It will show the insert link popup where you need to add your mailto link. Just click on the “Apply” button. WordPress will automatically detect that the text you are trying to link is an email address and will add the mailto: prefix to the email address.
