Email Address Link

You can create a link to an email address in any Content Type that uses a WYSIWYG editor, including the sidebar.

  1. Highlight the email address or words that you want to serve as a link.
  2. Click the Link icon on the WYSIWYG toolbar. The Insert/Edit Link window will pop up.
  3. Choose the External radio button.
  4. In the Link field, type mailto: then the email address. Do not include a space after the colon. For example, if the email address is cmshelp@brandeis.edu, type mailto:cmshelp@brandeis.edu

  5. Click Insert when you are done.
  6. Once you are finished editing the page, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Submit to save your changes.

Best Practice: When linking an email addresses or other words in paragraph text (regular text like this), we recommend you bold the links so they stand out. Example of a bolded email address link.
