Mailhide reCAPTCHA for Joomla 1.5
This is an update to the default email cloaking plugin provided by Joomla 1.5. Protect your email from abuse while helping to digitize books! This plugin is meant to replace the default joomla email cloaking plugin to give it an additional option for reCAPTCHA protection.
- without protection, you risk robots harvesting your email and inundating your inbox with spam
- reCAPTCHA is effective against spam robots because it uses text which OCR has trouble reading
- Since the text is from actual books which are being digitized, reCAPTCHA essentially provides thousands of hours of free labor each day to help digitize books
- Uninstall the default mail cloaking plugin (back them up first!)
- install the new plugin and enable it
The new plugin will use reCAPTCHA protection by default, but you still have the other cloaking methods available. The current mailhide functions will simply convert any variation of a email link to a mailhide link. if you like the plugin and want us to expand functionality, leave positive comments on joomla extensions website and we'll try to make it happen!
