when I edit a comment normally the email just contains the email like it should, but when I use 'quick edit comment' then there's code added in the email field after the email. This code to be specific:

/* <![CDATA[ */!function(){try{var t="currentScript"in document?document.currentScript:function(){for(var t=document.getElementsByTagName("script"),e=t.length;e--;)if(t[e].getAttribute("cf-hash"))return t[e]}();if(t&&t.previousSibling){var e,r,n,i,c=t.previousSibling,a=c.getAttribute("data-cfemail");if(a){for(e="",r=parseInt(a.substr(0,2),16),n=2;a.length-n;n+=2)i=parseInt(a.substr(n,2),16)^r,e+=String.fromCharCode(i);e=document.createTextNode(e),c.parentNode.replaceChild(e,c)}}}catch(u){}}();/* ]]> */

When I then save the comment using the 'quick edit' menu it's saved like this:


Which is unwanted behavior of course...

I tried disabling all my plugins and removing all custom code from function.php but the problem still persists...

Anyone have an idea what could be causing this?


That's your server trying to obfuscate and protect the email address:


Please speak to your hosting provider.
