[Pro] Obscure an email address

I want to obscure an email addresses on various websites (too much spam) and the Captcha route seems like a complex route, is there an easier way to do this in Freeway 6.

FW - since very early versions - has given you the option to ‘Encode with Entities’

Look in File>Document Setup under the Output Tab for the Email Hiding Selector

There is also an Action from Tim at FreewayActions.com | Anti Spam called Anti Spam which is very effective.

David - I already have the - File>Document Setup> Output>Encode with Entities - selected on my three sites, does this mean that my email addresses are being harvested from a source other than my websites.

Or is the Tim/Action a stronger option to use.

does this mean that my email addresses are being harvested from a source other than my websites.

Possibly - can you share a link to your site?

Bear in mind that poorly paid workers in the sub continents and Eastern Europe are paid a pittance to harvest email addresses by hand (a few $ per hundred)

Tim’s action is well worth using as well.

I think it would be a better exercise to simply google search your email address. You may see sites that you didn’t know were displaying your information.

This would be a good exercise for everyone to do, to improve the quality of our discussion on privacy. There is a serious discussion here, but not obscuring information.

David - the art design.org.uk is not Freeway, its still a GoLive site and I have been waiting for an opportune business moment to drop this graphics site and transfer the fine art site to this address. This may need to be done sooner rather than later in light of your findings. Thanks for your help.

… but it’s perhaps not the best idea to make the full email address as the title-Tag?

Just as a suggestion

title=Send me a virtual Pint"

Ernie:

I’d love to do increase important conversations but those won’t happen in this life and not on this board. It’s oriented to:

“I’ve got a sucking problem, can you fix?” Once done - off and away. Exercises sucking, too (a handful people excluded).

If this helps to decrease the unwanted traffic, then yes .
