7.1 Blog summary items - enable excerpt text link as mailto link

Recommended Posts

Hi - we have a central Tutors list created using a blog. Tutors are displayed on several pages in a summary block grid using categories to display relevant tutors. The summary blocks are styled like a List section simple list with items styled as a card. Item content includes image, title, metadata, plus a single link in excerpt text which is styled as a button using css. Is it possible to make this excerpt text link work as a mailto link opening in new window AND disable the blog item click-through to blog post? I can make disable work or the email work but not both....  very grateful for any help. Thank you.

Here is one of the summary blocks:  https://tfh-uk.squarespace.com/touch-for-health-uk

Weirdly my workaround is now working today - which is to pointer-events: none the image, title & metadata + Link Post Title to Source URL using the same mailto link as in the excerpt link (styled as button).... is this a reasonable way to do this? 

thank you!

Thanks Tuanphan - I did mean disable image, title, and metalink. But I solved issue myself using Link Post Title to Source URL using the same mailto link as in the excerpt text link (styled as button) and it seems to work!
