Thanks a lot for creating this great and useful plugin.
SPAM takes a lot of time in the daily business so it's best if there's no SPAM. In Germany we have to present a valid E-Mail address in the imprint of a business website, so it's quite dangerous that any E-Mail harvesting bot gets what it's designed to do: harvest valid mail addresses.
So a script like this helps a lot to minimize the chance to feed those bots.
It replaces text strings, but the links are plain as day.
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"><span class="oe_textdirection">moc.sserdda<span class="oe_displaynone">null</span>@liame</span></a>
Is this the desired outcome? Are the emails really obfuscated?
cool stuff, use on all projects
I never get spam through. This plugin + Akismet for Contact form 7 offer the best spam protection.
simple and effective, nice done
I apologize to the author as this plugin has an elegant UI, is nicely coded and looks useful. But I believe there are some misguided and naïve approaches here that will hurt Web users at large, while not delivering the privacy that site owners expect.
mailto:in the link includes the normal email address anyway.
john [at] doe [dot] comapproach to email obfuscation is a pain for end users, who actually want to contact you. A JS overlay (as actually suggested in this plugin's source comments) would be preferred from an usability POV. Non-JS users can still get the "at/dot" text and deal with it.
Does what it says and works easily.
Add a note to the FAQ please:
If you're in Firefox, don't test with "View Selection Source" - you have to test with "View Source" for the whole page.
Works perfectly for me. Simple as that.
