[SOLVED] Joomla -This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This is one of the most common errors in Joomla. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This usually occurs when you've included an email address in a Joomla article and you want to protect it  from Email harvesting spambots. 

You would've most probably used a built-in feature of joomla, i.e. enabled Content - Email Cloaking plugin, which basically does nothing but 'cloaks' the email address. It basically gives access to the email ID only to legitimate users who'll read and click on the message "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." so that it'll show the email in a separate window.

After enabling the plugin, this error would be visible onto every page where you have displayed some email ID. However no need to panic. The solution is as simple as a click:


How to disable the email cloaking plug-in:

1.  Login into Admin Panel -> Extentions -> Plugin Manager

2. In the filter field, search for "Content - Email Cloaking". 

3. Under Status, tick on the 'green tick' to disable the plugin.
