Announcing “Hide and Catch Email” A WP plugin

I’ve been working on the plugin for some time, and first put it in place on my site in April on my presentation page from WordCamp Orange County.

I wanted to collect some emails from parties who were interested in viewing the presentation and ask them if they might be interested in WordCampLA, since I am the lead organizer. The one you see on that page is modified for my use. I kind of put it out and forgot about it for a bit.

When I was putting together the sponsorship levels for WordCampLA I thought this may come in handy again. Last year I put the sponsorship levels in a zip file and put it up for download, but with didn’t know who was interested or who downloaded the files for that matter. So, I decided a page with hidden content would suit this particular situation best.

As of right now there are no options to control the plugin, though you do have a setting page where you need to activate it. There are some other things on that page but don’t really apply right now.

Use

Just input your shortcode before and after the content needing to be replaced like so:

[replace]xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx[/replace]

There are also two shortcode options at his time, you can control who can view the content by entering capability="level_10" which by default is set at level 10, and the text that show before the form by entering text="Some text"

[replace capability="level_8" text="Hello"]xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx[/replace]

Please leave any feedback or problems on this post or the Plugin page itself.
