I want to put at the bottom of a post, email me @.... if you have any questions. Can I make my email address a link?

You don't have to 'link' it.

I just add it to all of my pages as posts, by simply typing it in and all they do is 'click' on it.

Once you publish it and are not in 'edit' mode, it's ready to click and goes to your email.

Sorry, I went to check and for some reason it's not clickable.
I need to figure out why.
I have it the way we did it in the lessons way back, but have an idea of how to fix that, without linking.
My apologies!

No worries, when I make it a link, it automatically does it for me now!

Awesome!

I don't know why, but when I send myself an email with my website email address, it comes up highlighted (just like a regular website address because it ends with dot com) and when you click on it a window opens to send an email.

In edit mode while adding your email address to your post, once it's published, it doesn't come up highlighted?
So
I copied my 'highlighted' website email address and 'pasted' it to my post in edit mode and it works. it's highlighted. I update my post and there it is highlighted and clickable.

Oh no! There's just so much to learn and it all gets confusing at times, even the "easy" stuff!

I know there is so much to learn for sure.

I think I may just copy and paste it like I did to the one page, on the rest of them. Strange how it doesn't do it automatically anyway.

If you didn't write this post I would have never known, so thanks for doing that :)

Yeah, the easiest way to do that is to make it a link just like you usually do when you're adding a link to some other content. Generally, Wordpress recognizes that you're adding a link to your email address and does everything for you. If you see "http://" before your email in the URL field, you can manually change it to "mailto:"
Hope this helps!
