You want to add a phone number – and maybe a phone icon – to your nav bar. If you’re like me, you just spent an hour or two reading articles and found out that there’s the “long hand” way and then there is the “calculator” way, as I’ll call it.
Long hand: You can manually add your image then edit css like this great tutorial outlines.
Or, you’re super tired, your allergies are kicking your tail, and just want to get it flipping done – maybe you’ll revisit it at another time (or not).
Here’s your calculator shortcut:
- Add the phone number in Appearance > Menus. God love WordPress, there is SUPER easy way to do that, but damn I read a LOT of articles before finding this awesome gem from Organized Themes. They point out that you simply use CUSTOM LINKS for your menu item and use this format tel:+12125551212 and put the phone format in the expected format in the link text field. Like this:
- Install and activate Menu Image plugin.
- Add your image and select where you want it:
Save your menu. You’re done!
