[resolved] Are staff email address safe? (2 posts)

    I am wondering if staff email addresses that are entered on a website using Simple Staff List are just in the open or if they are protected from spam bots, etc.

    Thanks!

    I'm using the WordPress function antispambot() (reference link) to protect the email addresses.

    If you view the source of an email address the plugin outputs it will look something like this:

    <a class="staff-member-email" href="mailto:chuckypoo@chuckstr.com" title="Email Chuck Norris">chuckypoo@chuckstr.com</a>

    EDIT: Pasting in this code wouldn't work but it basically encodes some of the letters of the email address.
