    Clickable phone number link help!

    hi,

    Could someone out there help with a html code issue for my site? I have managed to get my phone numbers to to pop up for option to call when clicked on from mobile phone - but only when clicked and held, not (which is what I want) when simply clicked. Could anyone tell me what to do to fix this?

    Thanks in advance, Olly

    Could this be the way your particular mobile phone browser handles phone number links, rather than a problem with your code? When you see a phone number on other sites, do you also have to click and hold? Or do you only get that behavior on your own site?

    No, other sites are fine with my phone, it just seems to be my site (good old wix if that makes a difference?..)

    I'm not really sure why since there's no explanation given, but Wix's own docs say that this is a known issue:

    To initiate the phone call on an iPhone (using Safari) visitors must perform a long click (hold their finger on the link). To initiate the phone call on an Android (using Google Chrome) visitors can perform a short click.
