Add-On Type(s)



A plugin for EE2 that returns a ROT-13 obfuscated string with Javascript decoding. Useful for creating email links. Updated for EE4! Probably works with EE3 but not tested.

v1.0.1: added CDATA tag for XHTML goodness
v1.0.2: added EE4 compatibility

This plugin returns a ROT-13 obfuscated string with Javascript decoding within your template.


  • str - the string to be obfuscated
  • mailto - yes|no (default is yes). specifies if the string is to be made into a mailto link
  • label - if mailto is enabled this is placed between the <a> tags. if not provided str parameter is used.
  • title - if mailto is enabled this is used for the title tag . if not provided str parameter is used.
  • id - if mailto is enabled this is used for the id attribute.
  • class - if mailto is enabled this is used for the class attribute.

Usage Examples

Email Link with address as label and title

{exp:obfuscatee str="hello@world.com"}

Email Link with different label, title, id and class:

{exp:obfuscatee str="hello@world.com" label="Mail Me!" title="You know you want to" id="linkHello" class="button"}

No links, just obfuscated text:

{exp:obfuscatee str="hello@world.com" mailto="no"}
