Hi all

I finally built a website with RSD but have a problem. I don't know if it is an Iphone problem or something in the syntax of my link(s).

I added a telephone number as link and it looks like a link in color etc. But.... they say it doesn't work on the Iphone on Chrome.

Is there something I can change or is a link simply a link?

Thanks

Oh and another strange thing... on Safari the links are blue and on Chrome they are green as programmed. What did I do wrong here?

Use the telephone protocol for the href
In RSD place a text link, double click on it and in the HREF box put
tel:1-408-555-5555
(using your numbers) and edit the text to be what you like "call me" or the "number"
You can then style them like a typical link using a class like tel-link
Mobiles don't see hover link styles...
so you may want those not to have a different hover state color for desktops?

You can also add text links
sms:1-408-555-5555
Don't know where the support is for that now... I know iOS is good with it.
