Secure email links

There are two methods to provide a contact email address in a SiteBuilder page and protect it from spammers. The first is to use the page contact, which appears in the footer of all pages.

The second method, described in this article, is to add a secure email link to the main content of the page. The email is readable and selectable, yet obfuscated in the page HTML, which makes it more difficult for spammers to find the address.

  7. Select Add email address (or Edit email address, if editing an existing link). A secure email link component is added to your page, showing the email address you entered.
