Spambot Email Protector 2.02: Bug with Text Fields?

By gregThomas - April 15, 2019

Hey Amy,

Sorry, I've been slow to get back to you on this one. It took me a while to debug the issue, but I think I've found the cause.

If you open the file spambotEmailProtector.php and edit line 22 from:

  ob_start('SEP_replaceEmails', 2);

to:

  ob_start('SEP_replaceEmails', 10000);

you should find the javascript is added correctly for both email addresses. Please, could you test this out and let me know if it resolves the issue for you?

Hey Amy,

Excellent! I'll get a new version of the plugin released with the fix in, I'll let you know once this is done.

The problem was that the cache the plugin uses to check for emails that need encoding was far too small, so sometimes only parts of an email address would be stored.
