    I am getting an automatic blue phone number link on the iphone. This doesn’t work out for me as the blue gets lost on the background color of my footer.

    I’ve searched through the forum and tried 3 solutions that I found there. None of them worked so if you can help that would be great. Thank you!


    Hey meercatz,

    I’m not sure what you are referring to, I can’t see anything like that on my end. Could you post a screenshot of the problem please?

    Best regards,


    This screenshot is from an iphone. It is recognizing the phone number as a phone # link and turning it blue. It is also doing this on one of the browsers on a pc (internet explorer I believe).



    Hi, just wanted to check in and see if you found anything for this issue. I really want to go live with the website soon but have some of these pesky issues to solve.
    thank you



    That is because of format-detection meta tag –

    Please try adding following code to Functions.php file in Appearance > Editor

    function avia_turn_off_detection(){
    echo '<meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no">';
    add_action('wp_head', 'avia_turn_off_detection');

    Best regards,


    Holy jesus this worked! Thank you so much, this has made my day better. :)
    I have a few more unrelated questions, should I ask you here or start a new thread?



    You are welcome :)

    It would be better if you could please start new threads for other questions.

    Best regards,
