Hi, I hope everyone is well. I have been trying to link a button to my email address in Bootstrap and everything I try does not work. Does anyone have a solution?

Thank you.

Place the cursor where you want the link and in the Snippets panel got to HTML_Snippets > Adding a Mailto Link. Click the Insert button at the bottom of the panel.

Then wrap the 'Email Us' text in a button as per

<a href="mailto:name@website.com"><button>Email Us</button</a>

Posting an email link online is like erecting a big neon sign that screams "spam me."  Robot harvesters have no trouble finding email links.   Before long your email address will be in the hands of every spammer worldwide.   Do you really want that?

A secure contact form is better for everyone.
