Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Phone field with href="tel:" link Reply To: Phone field with href="tel:" link

  • I am trying to accomplish the same thing and this works for me:

    add_filter(‘acf/format_value/name=phone_provider’, ‘convert_phone_to_link’, 20, 3);
    function convert_phone_to_link ($value, $post_id, $field) {
    if (!$value) {
    // no value
    return $value;
    $tel_link= ‘+1’.preg_replace(‘/[^0-9]/’, ”, $value);
    $value = ‘tel:’.$tel_link;
    return $value;

    However, this causes the other button on the page, with a “mailto:” link to also show the phone popup. So clicking only on the phone button it works. However if you click on the button with the mailto: link which is supposed to only open your email program, it also shows the phone popup. Any idea why that would conflict?

    (Note: I am using elementor. I also tried the javascript adding the class name to my button, but that did nothing at all).
