BetterSpamProtect v1.4

Posted June 3, 2004, in Comments, Trackback, Antispam.


Movable Type weblog entry and comment authors often link their name to their their email address. Movable Type has a spam_protect feature to protect these addresses against harvesting by spam spiders. This feature, unfortunately, is not effective.

This plug-in upgrades the spam protection. Email addresses no longer appear as HTML text, but instead are produced by Javascript, thus making them less prone to harvesting. Users without Javascript (and--hopefully--spam harvesters) will see the name, but not the email address.

<$MTEmailLink name="my name" address=""$>

will display my name with the email address encoded using javascript
