I realize many of you use contact forms to control spam. I never have. I can manage SPAM just fine with encoded email addresses on my site. The web design app I continue to use to maintain my non-responsive websites (not Blocs) automatically encodes all email addresses on export, yet leaves them in plain text when designing. When you view the web page, you see the email in plain text, but if you view the web page code, the email address is fully encoded. Here’s an example contact page in my site with encoded email addresses:
Click on the email and now how your email client opens and “sαles@kiramek.com” appears in the email address field, which is correct. Then go back to Safari and view the page code and search for “mailto” and you will find the email address fully encoded. Great! That’s precisely what I want in Blocs. But so far I cannot get it to work.
I’ve added “sαles@kiramek.com” to my page in Blocs, and then I made it a link, and I select “Nagivation to URL” in the Interactions section of the right sidebar, and then in the field I paste in the following encoded information:
I then export, preview in Safari, and then click my email address link. That opens a new email, but the problem is that the email address in Outlook ends up looking like this:
s a l ...
With each set of “&” text being its own email address! In other words, it doesn’t work.
How do I encode my email addresses in Blocs?
