In the previous article, I wrote about how you can insert an email address into your WordPress text as a clickable link. This way, you can make it easier for your visitors to interact with you and simplify their experience on your website. You can find that article here: Clickable Email in WordPress. Today, let’s take a look at how to insert a phone number in WordPress. There are many ways to do this. But the first option is quite mundane, where you force your users to copy the number and then call you. The second option is much more interesting. Yes, you can insert a phone number into your website in such a way that it makes things easier for people.

How to insert a phone number in WordPress

To make a phone number an active element on your WordPress website, it can be inserted into the text similar to a URL address. Unlike email, where you use the “mailto:” attribute, for a phone number, you’ll use the “tel:” attribute. By using a URL format for a phone number on your website, such information will be more usable, especially on mobile devices.

Why use the ‘tel:’ attribute in WordPress?

Just like with an email address, using the “tel:” attribute can trigger an action, when a user clicks on a phone number on your website. Specifically, it will launch the phone’s native application for making a call when clicked on a mobile device. This means that your website visitor can call you immediately. Easily, without having to copy and paste the number into the dialer. They simply click on the number and they are connected to you.

You can imagine that someone in a hurry would appreciate this feature. And it will certainly increase the number of people who call you from your website. Especially those, who may have trouble with modern technology, or find copying and pasting a phone number difficult (typically seniors).

To use a clickable phone number on your website, you’ll need to use the following format:
