WP Email Invisibliser


A simple plugin to hide emails from spambots. Simply use the shortcode [hide_email] to hide from harvesters but create a clickable email link.

There is no complex encryption, that isn’t the purpose of this plugin. It simply removes readable emails from the html outpout, replaces them with a span element that uses the hex converted email address in a class and then replaces that span element with javascript on the fly to create a clickable link. If the viewers browser is not javascript enabled they will see a short message explaining why they can’t see the email.


  1. Upload the entire WP_Email_Invisibliser folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
