At the end of this tutorial you will have a new way of encapsulating e-mails avoiding crawlers to collect and use them as spam. Users at the frontend will have a well-known e-mail sequence to click thus avoiding confusion. Developers will not sacrifice usability versus spam-protection.



Having spam is something we as developers, must deal with daily, avoiding spam is a must that we should keep in mind in all our projects. The usual method of hiding an e-mail is to wrap it up with words like at and dot, this is a trend but when it comes to usability versus spam-fighting, users could get confused. Using the e-mail generation method of eZ Publish combined with jQuery leads us to a safer html code that will avoid further more e-mail-spam-grabbers and will bring up usability in our projects. Developers will gain protection for e-mails and users will rely on well written e-mail sequences.
