Hikari Email & URL Obfuscator

Email and normal links are obfuscated, hiding them from spambots. It automatically encodes each link, then uses JavaScript to decode and show them.

Let's say you have in your site a link as <a class="stylish-class" href="no.spam@spam.com" title="c'mon mail me!" target="_blank">mail me</a>.

It is obfuscated while WordPress is building the page, using WordPress hook system. Everybody (real browsers, spam harvesters and spam crawlers) will receive an obfuscated string: <span id="hkmuob-id-2709" class="hkmuob_noscript">mail me (no<span class="HkMuob_display"> NULL</span>.spam<span class="HkMuob_display"> null</span>@<span class="HkMuob_display">null </span>spam<span class="HkMuob_display"> NULL</span>.com)</span>, which is pretty much unreadable and looks like anything but a link.

For users without JavaScript or that simply don't wanna enable it on your site, thanks to CSS they'll see in the screen a text like "mail me (no.spam@spam.com)". It's not clickable, and Copy & Paste doesn't work properly, but it is readable and they can understand what you meant and see the original email/URL.

But, when users have JavaScript enabled (more than 90% of our real visitors), thet will see the obfuscated link exactally as it was originally, a clickable link with all its original attributes, the tooltip title and _blank behavior!
