How do you add an email address for people to contact at the bottom of the hugo site landing page?

I thought this would be easy but can’t find the info. How do you add a simple email address for people to click so it opens up their email client on a hugo website? I am trying to make the change in config.toml and have tried this:

    url = ""
    name = "Mail me"
    weight = 4

But it naturally opens in a browser and does not work.

A simple email address for people to click at the bottom would be great.

That behavior will vary from one computer setup to another. It’s not Hugo-specific. What you’re specifying will work if a user has an email client set to intercept all mailto browser links. Many users do, but many others (e.g., webmail users) do not.

It is in fact very easy.
You just have to find if the theme you are using support this out of the box.

If not you’ll have to add a piece of code in the footer section of your theme, that read the data form params.links.developer and displays it the way you like.
