Remove jQuery Plugin Instances

Here’s how to remove all instances of all plugins from an element if the plugin does not include a destroy method:


This will not remove the bound events. You have to do that separately.
If the plugin you’re trying to remove has namespaced events, you’re in luck:

// Remove namespaced events added using .on()
// Remove namespaced events added using .bind()

If not, you can examine all of the events attached to an element:

	'$element events:', 
	$._data($element.get(0), 'events')

Here’s all wrapped up in a handy function:

var destroyCrappyPlugin = function($elem, eventNamespace) {
	var isInstantiated 	= !! $.data($elem.get(0));

	if (isInstantiated) {
		$elem.unbind('.' + eventNamespace);

Using CryptX in WP Template

Separating the images from content using strip_tags in a WordPress Template to control the page layout. Using the CryptX plugin to encrypt mailto and email addresses so they won’t get picked up by spam bots. After installing the plugin, you can call the cryptx function directly from the Template to apply the encryption:

if ( function_exists ( 'cryptx' ) ) :
	cryptx ( $content, $text, $css, $echo );

$content is the string to encrypt.
$text is the string to replace the text inside the alt attribute of the <a> or <img> tags.
$css is the css class to assign to the link.
$echo is set to false to return the result in a variable, true to echo the result to the browser.
