Simple Mail Address Encoder

Description

Automatically encodes every email address in a mailto tag on posts, pages, sidebar widgets and post/page meta values to prevent spam. Simply decodes any previously encoded email address by just clicking the email link.

This plugin does not have any graphical user interface – just activate it in your WordPress backend and let it do its job.

The enduser behavior is the same as usual as if the email address was not encoded. Clicking the email address link forces a real-time decoding provided by JavaScript.

Features

  • Works without a graphical user interface
  • Encodes email addresses in mailto tags in posts, pages, text widgets, comments, and post/page meta values
  • Encodes email addresses even if the link is an image
  • Decodes every encoded email address in real-time using javascript
  • Works with JavaScript minifying and caching plugins to improve page loading speed

Requirements

  • WordPress 3.0 or higher
  • PHP 5.3 or higher
  • A WordPress theme using the wp_footer() template tag
