blocksy_safe_antispambot breaks HTML markup in email address fields

Hi @t33b33,

Sorry to hear that this change impacted you.

With this change we did two things:

  1. We obfuscated the content of the href attribute
  2. We obfuscated the contents of the content of the <a> tag itself (that’s where I presume you put the <wbr /> tag and also the unicode characters), to ensure the email is hidden from there.

To avoid the issue that you have we could introduce a filter that will allow you to skip #2, while the email will be still obfuscated in the href attribute.

Would that be enough for you?

Please let us know.

Best regards!
