[resolved] Email protection (3 posts)

    I'm using the "people" custom post type with this plugin. Really awesome! I love the flexibility.

    But I'm wondering if you took any anti-spambot measures to protect the site against email harvesters when using this plugin to show email addresses for a staff directory (for example). Your input would be MUCH appreciated.

    Yes, I did. If you're using a provided method for displaying email addresses, they're run through a JavaScript munger to obfuscate the address. Take a look at the source code and you should see it. It's not going to give you 100% protection, of course -- the only way to do that is to not display email addresses.

    If you're not using an MCM provided method to display the email address, of course, that's a different case.

    Best,
    Joe

    I bought the manual after posting this and did see the short paragraph explaining that. Thanks for thinking of that. Really enjoying the plugin, and looking forward to how it develops (especially creating our own custom fields!)
