slightly different from mobile phone, but it is very different from pc: if from pc you click on my skype search for me, or other program to phone, while with the only number does not do anything.

My question is that up to now BBcode still does not support embedding phone numbers in forum post content?
I come from Vietnam and I love phpBB. Sorry guys because I don't know English. I have used google translate to be able to communicate with you guys at this forum.

The answer is still the same as it was 7 years ago, typing the number like +44 123 456 7890 is clickable and the pop up is the same without BBCode.

This is on my iPad:

It's simple.

Add a new BBCode (ACP > Posting > BBcode)

BBCode usage:

Code: Select all

[tel]{TEXT}[/tel]
HTML replacement:

Code: Select all

<a href="tel:{TEXT}">{TEXT}</a>
Help line:

Code: Select all

[tel]phone number[tel]

That does not work Hal. " Your BBCode is constructed in an invalid form."

My name's Halil. :) No problem. Yes. It can be searched directly on a device with a sim card. On Windows or Mac, if the phone is connected to the computer, I think it can be searched directly. there is an application like this on Windows:

Then Halil it will be.
My name is Edward but people call me Ed for short. Hal was just short for Halil, no disrespect intended.

Haha okey, no problem. In Turkish, such abbreviations are not used (in general or except for some names). That's why it felt strange. No, I didn't take it as disrespect.

In fact, there is a word called "hal" in Turkish. But the meanings are completely different with Halil, and that difference very noticeable. Halil means true friend (But nowadays it is used as a human noun only), and "hal (hâl)" means like status, state... It is also read differently with hal in hal-il.

Sorry, it was like a language lesson. Turkish always excites me. :)
