Telephone Number Linker

Makes sure telephone numbers are clickable on mobile devices

WordPress 3.0 and Above

  1. Upload to the /wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate
  3. Use shortcode [telnumlink] to enclose your phone number eg: [telnumlink]123456789[/telnumlink]
  4. Or use shortcode to enclose HTML eg: [telnumlink "123456789"]<p>Call us today!</p><img src="phone.jpg"/>[/telnumlink]
  5. Alternatively a CSS class of mobile_tel to any element you want to become available as a clickable link for mobile devices.
  6. Using shortcode is better.

You can use the shortcode like this:

Dial this number: [telnumlink]0208 555 555[/telnumlink]

And mobiles will output a clickable number:

Dial this number: <a href="tel:0208 555 555">0208 555 555</a>

Desktops will output just the text:

Dial this number: 0208 555 555

You can also enclose any text (or HTML) in shortcode and make it into a telephone link. Add the number in double quote marks inside the opening shortcode tag:

[telnumlink "0208 555 555"]Dial this number now to get through to one of our operators: 0208 555 555[/telnumlink]

Mobiles will output a link:

a href="tel:0208 555 555">Dial this number now to get through to one of our operators: 0208 555 555</a>

Desktops will output no link:

Dial this number now to get through to one of our operators: 0208 555 555

Using a CSS class:

If you want to use a CSS class to create a link - in your WordPress edit page you might enter:

Dial this number: <span class="mobile_tel">0208 555 555</span>

And where a mobile browser is detected this will be output as a linkÉ

Dial this number: <a href="tel:0208 555 555"><span class="mobile_tel">0208 555 555</span></a>

Desktops will output a span with no link:

Dial this number: <span class="mobile_tel">0208 555 555</span>
