Insert link to email address

  • 1.  Insert link to email address

    Posted 07-28-2021 15:27
    Hello,
    How do I insert an email hyperlink? I am writing: "Please contact us for further assistance". I want the 'contact us' to be a link with my contact email address (not a contact us button).
    I am using Flex.
    Thank you,
    Pamela

    You just need to select the Link icon within the build feature of the Site Designer (similar to what you would do in Microsoft Word). From there you will choose the display language "contact us" and you'll insert the URL in the box where asked.

    Pamela,

    You should be able to insert HTML code to do that. Try <a href = "mailto:name@domain.com>Contact Us</a>

    In the text widget, highlight the wording you'd like hyperlinked and click on the link icon in the editor and enter your hyperlink.

    That's exactly what I did but the hyperlink tool in the text tool in the text widget automatically changes mailto:duke_nhgri_... To https://mailto:duke_..."

     

    I can use the mailto:... Using a custom link widget but that creates a separate widget that's not part of the paragraph I want to use the hyperlink in. Does this make sense?

    ​Are you selecting email address from the drop down?

    No, I didn't know it was there! Another Cvent associate pointed me in the right direction. My brain is mush!
