I created a map in order to show different companies, with address, telephone, website, photo and e-mail address. I want the e-mail addresses clikable, is it possible ? I tryed "mailto:+e-mail" but it doesn't work. Is there any solution ?

Can you explain what software/website/technology you used to make your map? Is this an "umap" question?

yes, it's a "umap" question...

You have to put links into double brackets:


It's the same for web addresses.

Thank you it works now !!! I tryed with {{ but not with [[………

Above the text box where you input the description there is a small icon with a question mark. There you find the allowed syntax.

Hi, I tried this in the properties table, but then the [[ don't work. How can I set a clickable email address in the properties table of a polygon?

I don't think that is possible or desirable. It would work against formatting in other places if you already did so in the properties table.

The solution with the brackets { and [ is not working.
