Is anyone here an HTML coder that could help me with a bit of code.

i'm trying to set up an email link on a wordpress code that includes mailto (obviously), subject, Body, cc and bcc.

Everything works perfectly until I add the bcc.

Once I add the bcc the link on my preview no longer is clickable - nothing happens and an email doesn't open.

From googling, I've done it correctly, so am wondering if it is in fact a bit of code my wordpress theme doesn't like.

I've coded it &

Would really apprecaite the help if there's any html expert out there.  I'm just a beginner!

Have you made sure you are using the text editor when you enter the HTML for the Mailto link? Just adding it as HTML works for me. (Self hosted WordPress). Might be different on

I used the following markup:

Yes - that is *exactly* what I have done.  

I'm thinking it might be a problem with the WP theme.

Do a View Source on the resulting page and make sure that the HTML hasn't been tampered with.

Not sure about your entire query string, but it is usually in the format of ?param=value&param=value

The ? indicates that what follows is a parameter/value pair, then each additional parameter/value pair is prefixed with & (and),  so address?param=value&param=value

Do what the poster has said above and view the rendered source.  You may have to escape the ampersands (&amp;)

All good -

The problem was not my code, which was perfect, but the browser.  Tested on a different browser and it worked.
Then it worked in my original browser as well.

So all good :)

Thanks for you help.
