How to use it?

Usually adding functionality to a WordPress site is by creating a plugin.
However you can simply copy the code and paste it in your child theme’s functions.php file at the end of the file, just before ?>.

For JavaScript code you will need to add them to your theme’s main JavaScript file.

    Hi there!
    I really like your code and it works pretty well for me, BUT –
    In my case I have phone numbers that starts with: “08” and it seems that your code doesn’t support this sequence.

    How can I tweak this code so it will also considered numbers that starts with: “08”?

      Hi Moria,
      The code does support local numbers like 08, 04, etc.

    Thank you for this solution,
    Phone numbers in Israel are now 10 digits, therefore the code should be without the 8 digits at this line, this so:

    if ( preg_match( ‘/^((0\d{1,2}\-\d{7})|(0\d{9}))$/’, $field[‘value’] ) !== 1 ) {

    Had to make this change because phones without the full 10 digits were sent.
    Correct me if I’m wrong 🙂

      Hi Michal,
      This is incorrect, the code does support both mobile and local numbers, please check again 🙂
