Have you ever wondered how to make a phone number on your Squarespace website clickable so that people can call you directly when opening your website on their phone?
In this blog post I am going to show you how to add a link to a phone number on Squarespace so that this phone number can be called directly when the website is opened on a mobile device.
The first option is to just use a text link and using the standard hyperlink and instead of linking it to a URL or your own content, you will link it to the visitors mobile device to dial a phone number.
you just type in the desired phone number anywhere as a text on your website
now you click on the link icon of the text box
as the external URL link you type in: tel:yourphonenumber all in one word including the country code. So it would look something like this: tel:0049123456789
you click add link and save and the phone number will just look like a link on your website
Button link to phone number
You can also apply the same principle to a button. Just add a button to your website by using the button block. And as the external link you put in tel:yourphonenumber without any spaces.
Navigation link to a phone number
The same applies to either your main navigation or your footer navigation.
You can just add a link to your navigation and that can be used to call you directly when your visitor opens the website on their phone.
click on to pages
add a new page link
type in your new navigation title, for example CALL ME
now just add your your phone number with the 'tel:' in front of it (without any spaces)
click save and you are done
