  • Creating an email link in HTML

    I'm trying to convert some type within my page into an email link.
    I have the code but it's not working.
    I've tried taking the code and type out of it's original place and putting it on it's own in a new document. And it works.
    So I'm thinking the reason why it's not working may have something to do with it being within a class i have created when styling the page.
    Any idea why this is???

    Just incase you need it, here's the code;

    email: <a href="mailto:info@placeyoursite.co.uk?subject=Plac e Your Site Information">info@placeyoursite.co.uk</a>

    Thanks, Tom

      The code as you've written it here is correct. Whatever the problem is, it must be somewhere else. Incorrectly nested tags or missing out the closing > on a tag could possibly cause it.

        just gone through the code and there is nothing missing.
        However, I've noticed that when i remove the class from it, it works. But obviously it isn't displayed how i want it to be.
        Any idea why this may be happening?
        Surely it has something to do with the class?

              haha, well I don't know why this worked, but I just removed the class that was applied to the link, and the link then worked. Not sure why this worked but it did

                That makes no sense as the style has nothing to do with the functionality. do you mind posting your style?

                  Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

                  You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

                  I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

                  Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

                  No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...

                  Ha! I sure wouldn't try it with somebody's face.

                  I just happen to have the artwork for what I was talking about. It was part of a large outdoor display at a marina advising boaters about...
