Mailto: and tel: link options in Rich Text editor for links


One of our customers suggested adding mailto: and tel: link options in the rich text editors URL editor.

While i mentioned that it does state that the normal URL can contain protocols, he was concerned that it was a bit on the technical side to assume that his editors knew what that meant.

It should not change how the link is created or represented. Its purely in the editor, that it would be helpful to say “Emaillink” or “Phonelink” instead of having to type “mailto:”

We are looking for this functionality as well.

Currently users are forced to markdown which is less ideal for non technical individuals.

We just ran into this as well!

Turns out you can add mailto: to the rich text hyperlink, and it seems to work!
