Protected email addresses

Hi,

Is there a way to protect an email address that’s on a site page so that the bots/spammers can’t get it?

Thanks,
Martin

Hi Martin,
Freeway should encode email adresses automatically, this function came up
with vs.5 Link:

You can make also use of Tim superb anti spam action:
http://www.freewayactions.com/product.php?id=002 It has some enhanced
encoding possibilities. I use it since many years and it works without any
problems.
Kind regards
Wolfgang

In the Freeway 5.0 Release Notes it says:

"Encoded Email Addresses

Freeway 5 automatically encodes email addresses, in HTML text and in links, to make them less accessible to spam harvesters. Encoded addresses can still be read by humans and web browsers, of course, and are a limited defense against more sophisticated spam harvesters."

In the code this looks like the following:

(span class=“style55”)info@(/span)mydomain.com(/p)

I used ( … ) brackets.

Is the above really an encoded email address?

No

What you should see in the Source Code is something like:

#99;#111;#110;#116;#97;#99;#116;#64;#97;#108;#108;#97;#110;#100;#101;#114;#104;#111;#109;#101;#99;#97;#114;#101;#46;#99;#111;#46;#117;#107

But if you use Safari Developers tools to look at it then these will be converted to regular text.

What you may be getting confused with is the encoding of the mailto links.

If you use info(at)mysite.com as the text on your page then that is readable but the mailto link is encoded.

You should really use something like ‘Click to email me’ with the mailto link applied to it which will then be encoded and the actual address will not appear on your page.

What Tim’s action does is actually encode the visible text as well.
