EMAILProtect: Secure e-mail addresses in Wordpress

I wrote a plugin for Wordpress which secures e-mail addresses from being found by spam spiders (and other crawlers).

The plugin rewrites e.g. "something@something.com" to a JavaScript. The script displays a clickable link for the user, but the original string is hidden from "non-JavaScript crawlers".

Instead of updating the actual script here - and on other sites - will I only be using the Wordpress SVN.

I will, however, be answering questions and taking suggestions through the comments.

Wordpress plugin site:
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/emailprotect/

Fun fact #1: In less than one week on Wordpress, EMAILProtect was downloaded more than 1000 times.

  2. @Shaw Thank you!

    If you look in the source code of the lodad page you won't be finding a e-mail address. If you search for "plug_emp" in the source code of the page you will see a JavaScript where it's suppose to be a e-mail address. Hope this helps!
