streamlit.errors.StreamlitAPIException: [... ]is a not a valid URL!

I’m trying to add an email address in the page configuration.

st.set_page_config(page_title="my title",
                           "Get Help": "",
                           "Report a bug": "support@fake_email.gmaill"})

Note: above are fake email / website.

My problem is that the web address’s link works fine but got an error for the email address : streamlit.errors.StreamlitAPIException: "" is a not a valid URL!

I saw that this feature was added last year

Do I need to add html tag or some css codes ?

Thanks for any help,

Hey @jonathanbouchet,

Whenever you want to point to a link, the string value should start with mailto:

Which means if the e-mail is, you want to use instead :slight_smile:

Hope that helps, if yes, I agree the error could be a bit more explicit!

Btw, that’s in the docs

Thanks @arnaud

I noticed my mistake after reading your email.

For some reason I was expecting to see the links in the About section of the drop-down menu, whereas the help and report a bug are their own sections.

And yes the mailto: works perfectly.

Thanks for the help.
