Phone links with tel:0123456 get corrupted


Hey there,

we would like to add phone links to our footer, using the tel: protocol (instead of http oder mailto). When opening our mails on mobile devices, a click on the button should open the phone app and starts calling the number (see for more information).

However, Active Campaign seems to corrupt these links and prefixes it with http://:



Instead of <a href="tel:+49123456789" (...) the output is <a href="http://tel:+49123456789" (...), so the button does not work.

Do you know any workaround for this? Thanks for your help.

Did you find a work around for this? I’m trying to solve the same problem.
