Email2Contact: an email cloak plugin replacement

The emailcloak plugin ships with Joomla and replaces the emails in your content with Javascript code aimed at hiding them from spambots.  This has two shortcomings:

  • spambots quickly learn how to decode the javascript;
  • sometimes our markup is so complex that the email cloak just fails to work properly.



email2Contact has a different approach: instead of trying to fool the spambots, why not use your contact forms? Email2Contact replaces the emails found in your content with a link to your contacts form.  You can choose (and localize) the text that will be used in the link, and several more options, i.e. whether to obey the code or not (highly discouraged)
