Hi, there.

At the bottom of every page on my client's site, there's a list of names, each of which can be linked to an email address. Is there a way of only creating a link if an email address has actually been entered? i.e. leaving it as plain, unlinked text if a person doesn't have an email address.

If you scroll to the foot of this page, Ryan Daly - in the right column - doesn't want his email address listed, so it's been omitted. However, his name still appears as a link.

This is the code I'm currently using:

<?php foreach ($personnel_emailsRecords as $record): ?>
<?php echo htmlencode($record['title']) ?> - <a href="mailto:<?php echo htmlencode($record['email_address']) ?>"><?php echo htmlencode($record['name']) ?></a>
<?php endforeach ?>

Is there a solution, please?
