Is there a way to add tel: links in the Redactor WYSIWYG?
I tried Link > Insert link to enter tel:+43123456789 as URL,
but all I got was <a>+43123456789</a>. The href is missing.

    I believe you need to turn off the "Purify HTML" or the "Clean up HTML" option, but I forget which - my money's on purify, though. Jul 7, 2016 at 18:54

Under your Rich Text field settings, if you uncheck the "Purify HTML?" option, the tel: reference will stay in tact.
