I have exactly the same problem as on this link http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/pho... unfortunately copying from note pad does not work. The problem only arises when I pust spaces between groups of numbers i.e: 0800 612 8832 retuns as a skype link whist 08006128832 maintaines its original format.

can anyone help I would rather be able to split the number as in the first example but do not want it to appear as a skype link.

thanks

Hello Kenny

Can you please try using dashes between your numbers and see if that helps?

Also, would you be able to post your site URL so that I can see what's going on?

Thank you for your patience as we work on this together.

Hi Sanja

I put dashes between the numbers as you suggested but now I get a skype type number with dashes!

The site is still being built but you can access it and all the other pages from this link: http://sitebuilder.yola.com/sites/Dec...

Thanks for your help

Hi Kenny

When I visit your link, the number does not activate as a skype number for me. I believe that it only activates for you but if you were to access your site from another person's computer, it will be a plain text number.

I've attached a screenshot of what I see.

Yes.. it is because you have skype on your computer. I also have it but it is not my number so Skype is not automatically recognizing it.

If you still have trouble with it, please let me know.
