Email Me


Creates an email link from the shortcode [emailme] that spam bots don’t find.
By default it uses your wp admin email but you can specify as parameters either:
– ‘name’ (for the first portion of the email before the @ symbo)
– ‘addr’ for the full email
– ‘display’ for what the link should actually display in between the tags.

If your wp-admin panel email (check your General Setting panel)
is: then
Examples: [emailme] =>
[emailme name=’dave’] =>
[emailme addr=’someoneelse@somewhereelse.fake’] => someoneelse@somewhereelse.fake
[emailme display=”info at freedomonlineservices dot net”] => info at freedomonlineservices dot net (but linked to the actual email!)
Note you can also set the ‘display’ option to an image tag if you use single quotes.
