How does the mailto cloaking
Before the advent of email spam robot
programs which systematically cull email addresses
for spamming purposes it was safe to publish your
email address on your website using the simple
"mailto :" identifier.
Unfortunately most people don't want their email
addresses harvested therefore Web Calendar Plus comes
with mailto cloaking technology which makes it
virtually impossible for a spamming robot to harvest
It works by using a combination of
mailto in the text, hiding the
'@' symbol and encoding
the email address using ascii character
is visible here and looks normal but it's
actually cloaked. If you
click on it or run your mouse over it you'll see that
it indeed works properly. The cloaking is
in the source code which is what the robots see when
harvesting email addresses. Look at the source

can hide your email address use the cloaking
technology outside of Web Calendar Plus and in your
other web pages. Simply click on the Edit Menu,
Cloak Email address menu and you'll be able to
generate code to cloak any email address along with
the message text.
How do you turn on
Simply go to the Calendar Settings
screen, Generation Tab and make sure that the Use
cloaking option is darkened. You can then
simply prefix your email addresses within the
description of the event with the keyword mailto: -
make sure to put a colon after the mailto word and
before your email address.
