    Any idea what the best way to use phone extensions in the telephone field would be in the staff listing?
    The issue is the phone number links using the “tel:” code, but it doesn’t work if you use an extension in the field (ie: 1-555-555-5555 ex. 234). On a computer it’s fine, but if you’re on a mobile, it lets you click the phone number and doesn’t work.
    Is there a good way to set this up?

    Best practice I could find for “tel:” with extensions is to use a comma between the number and the extension (ie: ), but that doesn’t look right when you’re on the website.

    I’ve put some changes into version 4.34.7 which should help.
