What does this plugin do?

This plugin hooks into the WordPress filters like the_content, widget_text and others (additional filters can be added). On each filter a quick (disableable) search for an @-sign is performed. If an @-sign is found, a (overridable) regular expression looks for plain text email addresses. Found email addresses are replaced with the return value of eae_encode_str() (changeable), which obfuscates the email addresses to protect it from being read by email-harvesting robots. This function is slightly faster than WP’s built-in antispambot() and uses additional hexadecimal entities.

Alternatively, you can use the [encode] shortcode: [encode]+1 (234) 567-8900[/encode]

How can I make sure the plugin works?

You cannot use Firebug, Web Inspector or Dragonfly, because they decode decimal/hexadecimal entities into plain text. To make sure email addresses are encoded, right-/secondary-click the page, click “View Source”, “View Page Source” or “Source” and search for any plain text email addresses. In Firefox, be sure to test with “View Source” not “View Selection Source”.

How can I use WP’s built-in `antispambot()` function instead?

You specify any valid callback function with the eae_method filter to apply to found email addresses: add_filter('eae_method', function() { return 'antispambot'; });

How can I filter other parts of my site?
  • If the content supports WordPress filters, register the eae_encode_emails() function to it: add_filter( $tag, 'eae_encode_emails' );
  • If the content is a PHP string, run it through the eae_encode_emails() function: $text = eae_encode_emails( $text );
  • If you want to encode a single email address, use the eae_encode_str() function: <?php echo eae_encode_str( 'name@domain.com' ); ?>

This plugin doesn’t encode the entire website for performance reasons, it encodes only the content of the following WordPress filters the_content, the_excerpt, widget_text, comment_text, comment_excerpt.

How can I change the regular expression pattern?

You can override the pattern with the eae_regexp filter: add_filter( 'eae_regexp', function () { return '/^pattern$/'; } );

How can I change the priority of the default filters?

The default filter priority is 1000 and you can adjust it by defining the EAE_FILTER_PRIORITY constant: define( 'EAE_FILTER_PRIORITY', 99999 );. The constant has to be defined before this plugin is loaded, e.g. in your wp-config.php or in Must-use plugin (a.k.a. mu-plugin).

How can I disable the @-sign check?

Like this: add_filter( 'eae_at_sign_check', '__return_false' );

Shqyrtime

Works… mostly!

As already stated, you won’t notice any difference as only the source code of the page is encoded. To test, I found it best to use Firefox, View Source Code and search “mailto”. The mailtos will be in red and encoded. I have one email address that was not and will try to figure out why but the other 2 dozen or so were protected.

Thanks for this super easy solution!!

Just works

I added a mailto: link to a WP template after installing this plugin and when I checked that section of the site the email address was scrambled. No configuration needed.

not working at all

This plugin does nothing. It is not working at all.
But other plugins that should do the same are also not working.
