Important: This feature has been deprecated, and may no longer be supported in future dotCMS versions.

We strongly recommended that all new implementations, and all existing implementations which rely on this macro use the Crypt Viewtool instead.

This macro allows to encrypt a string. The encryted value can be used in email forms to avoid having email address in plain text. The encrypted value is saved in the variable: $encryptedStr. If you want to echo out the decrypted value use: $crypt.crypt('string to encrypt').

Macro Overview:


#encrypt('string to encrypt')


  • string to encrypt
    This is the string that will be encrypted.
