    I just tried it and it worked for me with my Samsung Galaxy S5. Here is specifically what I did:

    1. Set "Name" to the number you want to use: 1-847-555-5555
    2. Set "Link To" to: Custom URL
    3. Set "URL" to: tel:1-847-555-5555

    By the way, very nice looking web site!

    I have 2 followup questions for the general community related to phone numbers. First, is there anyway to add the phone number as a link anywhere else than in the Navbar? I would like to add it to my About page as a click-to-dial link if possible. Second, When I google companies, the google summary description will often have a click-to-dial link which I find very convenient. Is there something we should do in SM to enable that?

    Hi Jerry,
    You can add links via the text content block. Select the desired text and click on the chain link button and paste in the link.

    The SmugMug profile doesn't support the use of code, so it's not possible to add links to it. You could only try to paste in the phone number as regular text to see if Google makes the number clickable.

    I tried this and couldn't get the link to work when I set it to custom URL what am I missing?

    Resurrecting the old thread. Smugmug text widget tries to be clever, but is actually pretty much stupid. When you add tel:123456 to custom URL, it puts http:// in front of that, so the link does not work ... I had to strip the text, add an html + css section, just to obey that oversight ....

    Hey Everyone. The easiest way to do this is by using a HTML content block and then add this code to it:
    <a href="tel:123-456-7890">123-456-7890</a>

    Of course change the phone number to your phone number :}
