'ZDNet Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNet's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Many people don't realize how important it is for a business to protect its email addresses. But if you think about it, that's how the most dangerous phishing schemes and hacks can succeed: targeting a company's contact points with bots and crawlers.
This plugin keeps your email address out of your website's source code, which prevents them from being detected and grabbed by web crawlers. Instead, your email address is converted into a clickable image that will open your email client, such as Outlook Express.
You may find this plugin incredibly user-friendly; it only takes a few clicks to install and configure it. No design skills or coding is necessary, yet you'll still have many flexible customization options. For example, the font manager allows you to select whichever font you prefer to display on your addresses, as well as its size and colors. You can upload custom fonts of your own and then choose how they're displayed in the plugin's settings.
The plugin offers support for dynamic content and custom CSS selectors. Also, it features shortcode generators that you can create, edit, save and manage in a Shortcode List for easy use in the future. Lastly, the live preview features lets you see exactly how your email address will display in real-time, and you can import and export settings or saved shortcodes between websites.
