ProcessWire Email Obfuscation (EMO)

Email Obfuscation module for email addresses with 64 base crypting

This module finds all plaintext emails and email links from the document and replaces them with noscript elements with configurable replace text. All the addresses are encoded to 64 base strings and stored in noscript data attributes. Then on client side we decode these strings back to their original state.

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
