Thanks a lot in advance!


Hi Luuk,

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

I have tested it on my test site and it’s working fine for me using latest version of Shapely theme as displayed in the attached screenshot.

Could you please try using that syntax as shown in the attached screenshot?

Best Regards,

Yes, I did this and I have the latest version of shapely.

When I click save, the skype call link in the “button link 2” box just disappears. The first box does not work either with the skype link.

This is how it looks like

Thanks you fr you help so far.

Problem resolved.

It was the google analytics plug in or the yoast plug in (which needed an update…

Thanks for the help

You are most welcome here :slight_smile:
