Cryptex | E-Mail Address Protection

Cryptex transforms plain-text E-Mail-Addresses into Images - automatically

The Cryptex plugin for WordPress is used to display email addresses - that are normally expressed in plain text - as an image automatically. It works with emails, telephone numbers, postal addresses or any other text-content. This will stop harvesters and crawlers from gathering sensentive data from your website. Just wrap your E-Mail-Address into a shortcode like [email]youraddress@example.com[/email] - that's it. Or use the Autodetect filter to transform every E-Mail-Address on your page automatically into an image!

Plugin Features

  • Fully customizable appearance: you can configure font-family, font-size and font-color - everything looks like your theme style
  • Shortcode and/or Autodetection usage!
  • Build-In E-Mail-Address-Autodetection - all addresses on your page are protected automatically (if you want it - you can also just use shortcodes!)
  • Autodetection filters configurable for the_content, the_excerpt, comments, comments_excerpt
  • Reversible Address-Autodetection Process - your content is modified aslong the plugin is activated
  • Also useable to protect postal-addresses, telephone-numbers, names and other sensitive informations
  • Protects E-Mail hyperlinks (mailto) by using javascript based key-shifting encryption/decryption with dynamic keys - but you can use images only
  • Suitable for high traffic sites - automated caching of dynamic generated images and CSS
  • Native support for MooTools and jQuery is given - all other frameworks/browsers are supported by generic javascript code
  • Automatic font-search (standard system font-paths)
  • Supports the new modern UI style of WordPress 3.8

Text-Transformations

The @-sign as well as dot's within the e-mail-addresses can be automatically replaced by different placeholders, e.g. mail(at)example{dot}org, to match your website's corporate design.

Security Modes

Cryptex provides various obfuscation modes for E-Mail-Addresses:

  • Plain Text - only text-transformations are applied - no use of images
  • Single Image - the e-mail-address is expressed as a single image
  • Multipart Image - the e-mail-address is splitted into two images, seperated by the @-sign in plain text
  • Advanced Multipart Image - the craziest one: each part (divided by dot's and @ sign) is displayed as a seperate image, the dividers as plain text

UPGRADE NOTICE to 3.x

Most of your custom cryptex plugin settings get lost on upgrading to the 3.x branch beacause of the new plugin backend structure - please backup them on your own.
