Phone links with tel:0123456 get corrupted


#1

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 https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/native-hardware/click-to-call/ 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.
