    I would like to add code as follows via the free text tool:

    <a target="_blank" href="sms:6188888888">Send SMS</a>

    This will allow a text message to be fired up by touch via mobile browsers, Iphone, etc.

    Unfortunately the editor edits itself to get this i.e. it sticks in a slash .... not cool

    <a target="_blank" href="/sms:6188888888">Send SMS</a>


    Can you look at the tinymce stripslashes function- I think it is this. Jotform is optimised for mobile in many ways, viewports, etc but this very valuable function (just like mailto) is not viable because the editor does what it wants

    Hi Mark,

    This would require a code change so I am assigning it to a dev for you now.  We'll let you know as soon as they have something.
