I have a custom field in a theme that contains an email address and was pleased to find
<p><a href="mailto:<?php antispambot(the_field('queries_e-mail')); ?>"> <?php echo antispambot(the_field('queries_e-mail'));?></a></p>
It looks fine and works as intended (ie. it opens a compose mail window) but when I view the code source it doesn't appear to be encoded.
<p><a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"> email@example.com</a></p>
According to the Codex the default usage is :
<?php echo antispambot("firstname.lastname@example.org"); ?>
which should output:
However the encoding doesn't appear to be working in my case.
