  • Resolved tdechangy


    Having mailto on a website has always been a spam magnet, so would you consider to include the missing email obfuscation as anti-spam tool ?

    Best regards.

    Hi! That will not be implemented because it’s not a security feature neither it’s an anti-spam tool. You should use a contact form instead of placing email addresses on a website. You can redirect incoming messages any way you need, e.g., using this plugin:



    I find this is a bit disappointing.
    Can you first explain how you don’t see scan-bots using visible emails to send spam emails as spam ?
    Placing email addresses on a website is something many users appreciate (me included) to have perfect control over what and when they send emails, this is why I won’t use your rule as the one-fits-all rule. Thinking might result in saying “Don’t own a website, you’ll have lots of issues” ..

    I use this plugin (email encoder) now for that purpose. You could eventually inspire you from its code since WordPress is opensource. Why not include such a nice feature ?

    Hoping to see your mind changing on this topic for lots of users !

    @gioni Hi Gregory, sorry for the unorthodox way of getting in contact but I’ve been unable to elicit a response to my forum queries and wondered if you could help? I need to be able to view the spam comments that are being filtered? Where/how can I do this? How can I reinstate a spam comment if it is genuine? For example, a lot of my comments might be valid reviews for my products. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance.

    @feesplacegooglemailcom Please dont spam this topic with your too specific spam issue. This is a feature request waiting for an answer that I wait for.

    Hope to read you soon @gioni.

    I understand it might be disappointing, but I’ve already answered that it will not be implemented. Do not mess with obfuscation; use a contact form instead.
