I've read documentation on the make_clickable function, and looked through the formatting.php file in the wp-includes directory. But I can't quite figure out exactly how to specify that I want email addresses that appear in my PAGES to be clickable. I was looking for a simple "make_clickable" function in the php file, and instead found a bunch (make_url_clickable, make_email_clickable, etc.). That threw me for a loop. I'm not sure those are what I should be p[laying with, or whether there's something someplace else.
Before anyone mentions it, I understand the SPAM ramifications, and am not planning on having email addresses anywhere except on one particular page, which lists the members of a database (from the Participants Database plugin) for my client. He's the only one who will even know this page exists. He wants to be able to click the email address and have it launch his default email client.
Can anyone tell me exactly what to code & where? I'm also assuming I'd need to re-code this every time WordPress updates (but please correct me if I'm wrong). It would be great if I could somehow use one of the Genesis "Simple Hooks" for this (thereby avoiding the update problem), but I'm thinking that can't be done. Please enlighten me if I'm mistaken on that account as well :-)
