Click to send an email with a mailto link

You can make links that open an email window when clicked, like this:

Click to send me an email

These are known as mailto links, and they are easy to make in WordPress.

Highlight the text or image that you want to make into a clickable email link. Click the Insert Link button in the WordPress toolbar. In the window that appears, type:

mailto:[email protected]

mailto-link

Click the Add Link button and publish your page. Now when visitors click the link their default email application will launch with the email address already filled.

You can even make your links include the subject line in the email. To do so, format your link like this:

mailto:[email protected]?subject=The subject for the email
