Converts text emails and regular mailto links into encrypted mailto links.
ProcessWire module to convert text emails and regular mailto links into encrypted mailto links to hide them from spam bots. The text email firstname.lastname@example.org would turn into the following encrypted mailto link:
Download latest module zip file via Download button of the ProcessWire module page or from Github release section and unzip it to your site/modules folder. Ensure the module folder is named EmailToEncryptedMailto. Alternatively you can clone the repository into your Processwire site/modules folder (recommended way for developers) via the following commands:
cd /your_processwire_folder/site/modules git clone https://github.com/cwsoft/EmailToEncryptedMailto.git
Once the module files are copied in place, login to your ProcessWire backend and reload the modules. Afterwards the EmailToEncryptedMailto module should show up in your backend ready to be installed by ProcessWire as usual. Once installed, view a page with email(s) in your frontend to see the module in action. You may want to install the German language file shipped with the module. For details see section Language files of the README.
By default the characters
[@.] are wrapped in paranthesis added via span tags in the visible mailto part to trick spam bots. The paranthesis
() are hidden by default from human beeings via the HTML attribute
hidden. Emails entered in input fields will be skipped from encryption by default. The module comes with zero configuration and should work out of the box.
Enrypted mailto links automatically get a mail subject "Your Request" (Default), respective "Ihre Anfrage" (German). If you want to use the German language file, you need to install it from the module installation section in the backend. Learn how to install language files or add translation files yourself by following the steps described in the Helloworld module by Ryan Cramer.
You can specify pageIDs as comma separated list of pages to skip from the email encryption via the module configuration section in the Processwire backend. Apart from that, no further customizations are yet available. Idea was to keep this module as clean and lean as possible. If you need additional features or want to customize stuff to your needs, you may want to test out other E-Mail obfuscation modules available in the official ProcessWire modules catalog.
