Protect forum against email harvesters bots


(Raphaël Jadot) #1

Hello,

sorry if it’s duplicate, is there a way to automatically protect email addresses written in posts to be scanned by bots?

(I mean out of doing it manually, like replacing @ by [at] by hand)

You could censor out emails…

In your site settings, search for censored and add the regex for emails. This way, emails will be redacted if they are posted.

Thanks @robbyoconnor, I used the RFC 5322 regex, this works perfectly well!
