Obscure, (see files on GitHub), encodes all content between the tags {exp:obscure}{/exp:obscure} similar to the way the {encode} tag for email works in ExpressionEngine. Add-on provides additional flexibility by allowing you to include other elements or images within the tag. For example:

    <a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=I can fix Obscure Add-On">
      <img src="...envelope-icon.svg" alt="Email Megan" />

Currently this add-on only works in EE version 2 & 3. ☹️

Are there any PHP-savvy folks out there interested in updating this code so it works in ExpressionEngine 5?

The update is waiting for you. You can take it in my fork or approved push request which I did for your repo.

p.s. I will do some extra updates this evening because I can see that some unsafe method using - like $_POST
