  • Hi.

    Thanks for the plugin.

    I think it would be great to add an option to change the default “AT” and “DOT” tags used to encode an email address; This would add a great deal of security and would also make the plugin more international as one could use different languages for the encoding tags.

    What do you think?

    Can you give an example of what you would change the AT and DOT into?

    For instance: “PRESSO” and “PUNTO” (in Italian;) or whatever you want. I believe some spammer bots start to recognise alternative forms such as yourname AT yourdomain DOT com.
    A simple configuration option would add a great deal of flexibility.

    OK, that makes sense. I will try to work on adding internalization or customization.


    Keep up the great work!

    Cheers from Italy!

    I’ve internationalized the development version my plugin so that it can be translated. You can download the development version here:

    Inside there is a ‘languages’ directory and a file named humansnotbots-it-IT.po. This is a partially-translated translation file that I made. I put in “PRESSO” and “PUNTO” for “AT” and “DOT”. I then compiled it to make the binary file that is used by WordPress to show the translations. I tested it and it works with “PRESSO” and “PUNTO” if the WordPress language is set to Italian.

    If you want to translate the other strings, you can edit the PO file to fill in the rest of the translations. After, you can compile the MO file if you are using Linux with:
    msgfmt -o filename.po
    or you can send me the file so I can compile it for you if you aren’t using Linux.

    (It is probably good if you send me the PO file anyway so that I can include the Italian localization files when I release the next version of the HumansNotBots plugin.)

    There is also an example Italian PO file here:

    THanks a lot! I’all work on it!
