hi Bob,

if i understand correctly, you want to make a link for your email address. you can do this with a few easy steps.

after logging in and opening your site in the site builder:

1 - place a text widget on your page, wherever you want the link to appear

2 - type the words you want to be linked (e.g. "address@site.com" or "Click Here To Contact Me")

3 - highlight that text with your mouse

4 - look at the horizontal menu above (it shows up when you work in a text widget), in the middle of that menu you will see a chain link symbol. clcik on that symbol.

5 - in the window that shows up, you can make a link. in your case, you want to click on "Email" and type in the email address that you want the words to link to.

6 - press ok

now you have a link for an email address.

Although you technically can put your email address right on your site, that is definitely something you should keep private. you don't want people spamming you

the only solution around this would be to put a form on your site for people to contact you without you exposing your email address.

hope this helps
