Support » Installing WordPress » Mailto image

  • I don’t particularly like having to use a contact form for my WP Italian blog, so I’m trying to use an old-skool trick and insert a little text image (GIF) in my header with my blog’s address, to fool harvesters.

    I added a mailto link to my text image, using the the WP function to disguise email adresses from spammers, like this (in my header.php file):

    <a href="mailto:<?php echo antispambot(get_the_author_email()); ?>"><img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/mailto.gif" alt="..." /></a>

    Unfortunately the link opens a new message window in my e-mail application as it should, but no address is displayed.

    I checked, and the address is correctly listed in my admin profile.
    What am I doing wrong? 🙁
    Any help appreciated.
