Adding External Link as Page
Is this possible? If so, how is it done correctly? I tried it but it is trying to make the email address as a URL.
Please help... Thanks.
Add a html block to the page and use the following code
<a href="mailto:youremailaddress">Email Me</a>
or use the above code in a content block.
<a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>
but if you publish an email address on the WWW, that email address will soon start receiving unsolicited junk email. This is because the email address will get harvested by spambots. It may be a good idea to setup a special keyword for the purposes of publishing on web pages. For example you can say,contact
<a href="http://www.nadabluebookinfo.com">nada blue book </a>
<a href="http://www.nadabluebookinfo.com">click here </a>
I have a footer menu on the website and the menu contents are driven by the Concrete site structure... Therefore, as one of the menu options, I am adding an "external link" which normally works just fine for a URL external link, but in this case, I need it to work with an email address instead.
I've tried both scenarios of just entering the email address in the URL field in the "Add External Link" pop-up window in Concrete... or tried doing it has the standard HREF line of code as mentioned by JHANA in their response post. All this does is simply displays the entire line of HTML code instead of what is indicate as the "name" to display.
So still at a loss here... Is this possible or not?
Fill in 'Link URL' - mailto:[email protected]
Use mailto: in external link.
Could you mark it as best answer, so others will know.
I think that you are wanting to link to an email address using auto nav.
Could you just create a contact page with a form to fill out and submit which can be emailed to the required address.
I tend to avoid using the mailto function as not everyone has a mail client set up.
