Phone Number field for Craft CMS

This plugin adds a new fieldtype to Craft for entering phone numbers along with a Twig extension for extracting numbers from a string.

It's built on the excellent libphonenumber-for-php port of Google's libphonenumber library.


This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.6.12 or later.


You can install this plugin from the Plugin Store or with Composer.

From the Plugin Store

Go to the Plugin Store in your project’s Control Panel and search for "Phone Number". Then click on the "Install" button in its modal window.

With Composer

Open your terminal and run the following commands:

# Go to the project directory
cd /path/to/project

# Tell Composer to load the plugin
composer require rynpsc/craft-phone-number

# Tell Craft to install the plugin
./craft install/plugin phone-number

Field Type

The Phone Number field provides an easy way of parsing, formatting, storing and validating international phone numbers.



  • {{ }} - The raw region code as entered in the field
  • {{ }} - The raw number as entered in the field
  • {{ }} - The alphabetical country code
  • {{ }} - The numerical region code
  • {{ }} - Returns a phone number link
  • {{'e164') }} - Formats a phone number

Number Formatting

Numbers can be formatted in the following formats:

Format Example Output
e164 +441174960123
rfc3966 tel:+44-117-496-0123
national 0117 496 0123
international +44 117 496 0123

The rfc3966 format is also available via the tel alias.

Number Types

Number types are returned as integers.

Value Type
0 Fixed line
1 Mobile
2 Fixed line or mobile
3 Toll free
4 Premium rate
5 Shared cost
7 Personal number
8 Pager
10 Unknown
27 Emergency
28 Voicemail
29 Short code
30 Standard rate

Twig Filter

The tel filter extracts phone numbers from a string and turns them into links, using the number as the link text.

{{ entry.text|tel }}

By default, only numbers entered in international format will be formatted. To format local number i.e. those without a region code such as +44, you can pass in a default country code to use when parsing.

{{ entry.text|tel('GB') }}

Both the getLink() method and tel filter support setting the generated links content and HTML attributes.

Attributes are set as per yii\helpers\BaseHtml::renderTagAttributes().

    class: 'my-class'
}) }}

{{ entry.textField|tel(null, {
    class: 'my-class'
}) }}

If text is included in the attributes argument, its value will be HTML-encoded and set as the text contents of the link.

    text: 'Content'
}) }}

{{ entry.textField|tel(null, {
    text: 'Content'
}) }}

If html is included in the attributes argument, its value will be set as the inner HTML of the link (without getting HTML-encoded).

    html: '<div>Content</div>'
}) }}

{{ entry.textField|tel(null, {
    html: '<div>Content</div>'
}) }}
