Hi! 🙂

I was wondering if anyone else could help with a weird problem I seem to have. In the web link part of my profile I have my Flickr page as the first but when I click it, it opens an email. Well it does for me for some strange reason.

Anyone else have this problem? I've checked the URL and it's fine. I don't get it.

Thanks!

It's the @ symbol in your flickr url that is confusing SC which adds the 'mailto:' part thinking it's an e-mail address.

A work around is to use an url shortener like tinyurl, bitly, or https://goo.gl.

Thought it might be that, thanks for clearing it up! 🙂
It might also help if you add http:// or https:// in front of your URLs.

This worked for my Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter links.
