Update for 5.7

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Will you be updating this great add-on to work with C5 5.7? I have a few projects on hold.
Also - you should charge something for it.

Type: Pre-Sale
Status: In Progress

Hi there,

Short anwer: yes, it is part of our plans to bring this into 5.7. And no for the charging part, it will remain a free add-on.

However, it is not a high priority for us currently. Paid client work goes ahead of everything currently and the end of the year / start of the year are usually the busiest times for us. After that comes upgrading our paid add-ons. And after that the free ones.

So, it is coming but I don't know exactly when. Best that I can tell you at this point is "once we have time".

If you want to pay for us to do it, of course then it will happen more quickly but you would need to agree on us to release the code with an open source license. If you wait until we find the time to upgrade it, you will get it for free.

Would be great if you could find some time for progressing.

If you absolutely need email protection - then yes.
I inquired as to the cost of having the upgrade done. It was a fair price for a half day's work, but then thereafter to be free for everyone else? My client didn't go for it.

He was insistent on using 5.7, so he will be dealing with spam on the server and computer. As his current email is "unprotected" it didn't make much difference.

If you are really interested and need the add-on, maybe we could go half/half. PM me.

Then there are these suggestions from 2010 - probably still valid

I'm absolutely with @arlenesey above.

If you don't want to loosen your criteria, you should go with 5.6.

We hardly ever use the add-on ourselves, although we have already implemented multiple sites with 5.7. It was actually born for a client who insisted that but as noted above, even the best obfuscation methods do not necessarily keep your emails safe.

The best protection for spam are good filters in your mailbox.

However, if you want any update on the progress, the situation is basically the same as it was when the last message was written.

The 5.7 version has just been submitted for the PRB review process in the 5.7 marketplace. We'll keep this thread informed on the progress and once it goes officially live.

Meanwhile, you can try it out by downloading it directly from the GitHub repository at:
https://github.com/mainio/c5_automatic_email_obfuscator...

Note that we have also open sourced the full source of this add-on under the MIT license.

This is great news.
Even with all the discussion, it is a great psychological boost for the clients - knowing we employ all methods possible to fight spam.

Thank you
