Yes you can there are 2 ways to do this :

 

1 - Create a custom link with Code block and use the following code

<a href="mailto:email@gmail.com" target="_blank" >Text you want to show </a>

2 - Code custom Js which is bit complex , Please do let me know if it works with the first one if not will post the 2nd one 🙂

Ok, thanks for taking the time to answer this and perhaps it will be useful to someone else.

Since this is a client site, and they will be editing their own text from here on out, and the links appear repeatedly within paragraphs throughout the site, I don't want to set them up with all of that text in a markdown block.

Hi Tuanphan -

I am going to set it up with a Business Plan but it has not been set up yet - it's still in trial mode.

I've got to be honest that I am quite comfortable adding css and html because I understand how it works. Adding js makes me a little nervous! It's not going to cause any problems, is it?
