Create a clickable link in WordPress sidebar for Sparkling theme

Hi, I really love the Sparking theme. Really easy to use for somebody without any html or css skills.

Q: In my right sidebar, I have a text box with my contact details. Is it possible to ‘activate’ the email address, to turn it into a link? I have tried adding ‘mailto:’ beforehand, but that’s not working.


Hi @fa5ari,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can achieve this by adding the following code in your text widget. Just change the email address and email subject in the following code.

<a href="mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Hello%20again" target="_top">[email protected]</a>

I have tested it on my test site and it worked fine for me but if due to any reason it doesn’t work for you then could you please share the page URL from your site where you are using it so that i can troubleshoot it?

Best Regards,

Thank you Movin! I had figured out a way in the meantime but thank you very much much helping!

You are always welcome here :slight_smile:
