HumansNotBots - Easy, Accessible Email Cloaker

"email AT address DOT com" (without quotes) is converted to a clickable version of email@address.com if JavaScript is enabled.

Won't email scrapers figure out email addresses in the form `email AT address DOT com`?

In a test comparing the effectiveness of different obfuscation methods in 2008, the obfuscation method "Using ATs and DOTs" received much less spam than "Replacing @ and . with Entities". Assuming that the 2008 test is an accurate model, this plugin should reduce over 99% of spam without compromising accessibility.

"CSS display: none" should not be used, because screen readers cannot read content styled with display: none either. Reversing email addresses and using ROT-13 encryption are obviously not accessible, either.

Do email addresses that end with ".ca" or ".info" work?

Yes. Any email address with a TLD (top-level domain) of two, three, or four characters would work.

Do email addresses that end with "co.uk" work?

Yes. Email address that end in "co.uk" always worked, but as of version 3.2, you can use the intuitive form: email AT address DOT co.uk.

Something is broken.

Remember that the AT and DOT must be all uppercase (capital letters). You can also try going to Settings and change the replacement method to "Walk the DOM", which is the new default for version 3.0+.

If you still have problems, you can post your question in the forum and make sure your post has the tag humansnotbots. Another option is to post your question here.
