Hi, I would like to create an employee list with corresponding data and emails as ACF.
I used a email field in ACF and a cwicly repeater to let it pop up un my site. That works fine but I would like the email clickable (mailto:)
I tried different methods but I couldn’t achieve it.
Does somebody have any Ideas how to achieve this?
I have an ACF field (containing e-mail in some form).
I would like this field to appear as a clickable link
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com or something else</a>
Do you have a live site?
What’s your exact approach?
Do you use dynamic attributes?
Not aware of a current solution which can give you
mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org, by only inserting
You would need to prepend
mailto: inside your email field every time but can’t say for sure.
There might be some code snippet which can inject that for you on page load.
Must have missed this.
While we don’t currently offer a ready solution for this, you can use the following as a static url:
Hi @Marius and @Louis, thanks for the replies.
I have a custom post type (CPT UI) that contains my staff members.
Each staff member has several fields ACF and also a field for email.
This email field should only contain an e-mal with no code, hence the question.
So I am currently trying to display a dynamic email as a clickable link.
For the solution, I am using a query to filter by the staff I want.
If I want the content to display only the clickable email, I use a header and use the dynamic content to display it. Then I use the code from @Louis to add the clickability (href).
If I want to add something other than just the email, I would wrap that with the header in a div and link that as href.
Thanks for elaborating @T-low.
Seems like a common use case.
Totally forgot about this approach, thanks for the reminder @Louis, bookmarked as well.
