Hiding primary and technical contact email

Is there a way to hide the primary and technical contact emails on the contact page. We’re trying to avoid spam without having to use heavily restricted spam filters. And we realize that the system uses the primary email as a “return to” address.


In that case, using CSS to hide probably won’t be enough. You could consider altering or removing lines 48-50 here in your installation: ojs/contact.tpl at ojs-dev-2_4 · pkp/ojs · GitHub

Thanks. That’s what I was looking for.

is there a reason we cant use HTLM entities to obfuscate email addresses?

I tried using this without success sample@gmail.com

note that it renders the email correctly

eg: see instructions here Fight Spam By Hiding Email Addresses

UPDATE: this solution works and will slow down bots i think - - insert < code > around the @ sign
