Does just what I want
By , for WP 4.4

I maintain a web site that has addresses of an organization's board members. Wanting to better protect them from spam, I tried this plugin and am quite pleased. On the WordPress "Edit Page" for the page in question I enter email addresses in the form
myname@myorg.com([Click here to send])*

The plugin takes everything in the parentheses and displays that as the link. I've told the board members that if they'd prefer, I can do something like
myname [at] myorg [dot] com
or any variation they'd prefer, for their email address.

At the bottom of the page in question I added the text
* This site uses an "anonymizer" to protect email addresses from spammers. Click on the text if you want to send someone an email. In many browsers, moving the pointer to the link will give you a popup that displays the actual email address (preceded by "mailto:").

Bug fix required

The Email Protector plugin is useful but needs amending - domain extensions can now exceed 4 characters in length. e.g. .london

Works, but documentation a bit sparse

Bottom line is, I'm glad it's working with the latest WP! And I hope it truly obfuscates (you can't visibly tell if it really does hide anything from spambots). I used it out of the box, and also with my theme in the PHP file, like so:

echo '<span class="pep-email" title="E-mail">'.$p_email.'</span>';

(Where $p_email was a custom fields variable.)

Works well!

This works as promised in the content. In the plugin settings you choose the text you want to have in parenthesis that replace the @. And that's it! It just works.
Because of the way it works, it will also affect the email address used by the Jetpack contact form. You will need to use another contact form if you use this plugin.
