Simple Mail Address Encoder
[resolved] Doesn't seem to work...? (3 posts)

    I installed and activated Simple Email Address Encoder, then wrote a test post with an email address in it: me@somewhere.com

    When I viewed the source in my browser, the email address was right there in plain sight. Not obscured in any way.

    I thought maybe the specialized theme I'm using doesn't call wp_footer() so I switched to the default 2010 theme. Same result. In any case, I do see the javascript code in the footer when I view source; I just don't see it having any effect.

    Am I missing something?

    Okay, I see what I was missing. This plugin encodes addresses in HTML mailto tags only; it does not encode email addresses that are simply part of a plain text post or page.

    I think your documentation should make this clear. The description of this plugin says it will encode any email address in a post or page. It should say it will encode any email address in a MAILTO tag.

    Hello drwool

    Thanks for your Feedback.

    The Plugin only encodes mail addresses within a mailto link.
    I've just updated the description.

    Maybe I'll add this feature in a future version of the Plugin.

    Regards
    Tobias
