I would like to add some emails and phone numbers to my web site. I am concerned about this information being pickedup by some sort of spy bot.
In the pass I have used a plugin like this "" and would like to know if you have this functionality in your tools or if you have any recomendations on intergrating this plugin.
This plugin works by adding a short-code before and aftrer the number or email needed to be hidden. But I cant get a grasp on how to use the custom short-code function in ToolSet.

Thanks in advance for your time and help. Regards



Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

I've checked the 'Email Encoder' on my website and it seems to automatically recognize and protect the email addresses and mailto links, generated by the Toolset's email field.

This means that you can just activate it and it should work, without any additional shortcode.



My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
