Anti SpamBot Email Button


Adds a button to the TinyMCE editor that puts a selected email address into a shortcode [email] and turns it into a mailto-link, which uses WordPress’ native antispambot() function to encode the emailadress so harvesters can’t get it.
This is my very first public plugin, so please be gentle with your comments 😉

Find it on GitHub



  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place an emailadress in your post or page, select it and press the email button in the WYSIWYG editor


How do I use it in the plain HTML editor?

Put the email adress in the [email] shortcode like this: [email][/email]
