Hide and Catch Email

Replace the any public post types content with a form. Any visitor (who is not logged-in and/or set to a certain user role set by you on a per post basis) would have to fill out the form to see said content. Right now the form consists of a name field, email field and comment field. The form has a built in spam deterant honey-pot method.

There are two options per each post for the cotent replacement. 1) capability => defaults to ‘activate_plugins’. 2) text => defualts to empty – (the text you’d like placed before the form).

There are no furthur options or ways to view who has submitted which form beyond the email you receive. If you would like to keep a copy of all submissions per post please upgrade to the Pro version, including double spam protection and AJAX submissions.

For requests or feedback please leave comments on Hide & Catch Email.
