is a simple, but special Joomla! system plugin to disable mailto function.

GPL Licence

This plugin disables also the "recommend to a friend link" and the "recommend to a friend form" from frontend.

By default, Joomla! has no option to disables these, because it comes from locked com_mailto component.
It´s possible to disable mailto function for each article, but not globally by simply disabling com_mailto.

Here that Disable MailTo Plugin helps. It allows the activation and deactivation of the component by plugin settins.
By default, com_mailto will be disabled. Just need to install Disable MailTo, it´s all, simple and effective.

All features through plugin settings:

  • Redirect SEO old component mailto links to homepage or to custom URL
  • Remove link to friend link from fontend article settings dropdown
  • And the described switch to enable/disable com_mailto

Note: This plugin is like a switch to fire enable/disable com_mailto just on plugin save. So, it´s not realy a system plugin feature, it´s a way beetween to optimize page load performance and bring that feature.
Plugin must be enabled to trigger enable/disable events. To undo changes, just need to uninstall plugin.

System requirements

Joomla 3.x +
