E-mail encoding in Sydney Pro contact footer

Hi, I would like to encode an e-mail address in the footer contact section, to prevent bots from finding it.

There is this forum entry, where the problem is said to be solved by installing a specific encoder plug-in called Email Address Encoder: Encode footer email address to help avoid bots.

That solution may have worked in the past. Today, however, Email Address Encoder no longer seems to work in the footer contact section (although it seems to work for other parts of a site using Sydney Pro). Nor does an alternative widespread encoder plug-in by the name of Email Encoder.

Any advice on how an e-mail address in the footer contact may be encoded would be much appreciated.


I posted two stackoverflow links in the topic that you mentioned above, you can find some interesting solutions there. However, I would suggest you to create a Contact page with a contact form that is protected with CAPTCHA. Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.
