ROT13 Encoder/Decoder

Plugin to encode/decode and display content using the ROT13 cipher.


  • Settings admin page now limited to users with manage_options permission (i.e., admin users only).
  • Administrative ability to ROT13 comments limited to those with manage_comments permission.
  • Fixed Javascript bug on Comments page.


  • Fixed a now-nonexistent reference to a JavaScript object (fixes JS error w/ the WordPress editor)


  • Removed rot13-encoderdecoder-admin-tinymce.js (No need anymore; required JS variables now hooked directly into editor). Fixes incompatibility with OptimizePress.


  • Site admins can ROT13 entire comments from the Comments screen.
  • Dashicons support for WP 3.8 + added. Support for old-style icons in Admin/TinyMCE is deprecated.
  • Quicktags support added.


  • Added some error checking on the color options.
  • New Decoding Trigger: "Hover" will decode the ROT13'd text when the mouse is over the encoded content.
  • New Popup Box Shadow Settings for the ROT13 popup window.


  • Palettes on Settings color controls are now loaded from colors read from the active Theme's stylesheet. This should help in choosing colors that fit in with the active Theme.
  • Text in pop-ups now take on the same font family as the original encoded text.


  • Fixed JQuery bugs evident when shortcode is used multiple times on a single post.
  • "click"/"dblclick" events now bound using .on() instead of bind() (allows other plugins to AJAX-load content using the [rot13] shortcode without losing the decoding functionality).
  • New popup options "Border Width" and "Border Radius".
  • No more shilling on the Settings screen. Enjoy!


  • Color picker on settings screen now uses the built-in Iris jQuery plugin.
  • Use of wp_localize_script means no more passing values to Javascript files via query strings (DOING IT RIGHT!).
  • Allowing commenters the use of ROT13 is now an option instead of automatic.


  • Fixed some default settings.
  • Improved documentation.


  • Initial release.
