Is there a thing that stops c and p going on?

    I have a site to sort out (not mine) and as I'm going along sorting out the content, I got to wondering about that thing that you do that prevents copy and paste maneuvers.

    I don't actually know what that thing is, I just know that it exists. Is it something that you insert into the code, a widget? Any advice gratefully received smile

    You can disable right clicking, which will also make downloading images from your site harder (but not impossible). However, this will also make it harder to open a page in a new tab or window, so you will risk annoying your users.

    Yep thanks dingdon - just realised that, plus the fact that those that rip content only have to check the page source anyway.

    Never mind - wishful thinking smile

    its a small bit of javascript.

    Yes, it wont stop an automated scraper that just checks the page source, but it will deter the naive user who thinks its ok to paste an entire article in a forum post or onto their personal blog.

    A savvy user can just disable javascript while on your site also.

    What code do you use that adds a line at the bottom when it is copied such as "to read more visit this URL" and gives the address of the whole article and who wrote it?

    Thanks! Thats my little handful.

    Yes any of the javscripts would work in wordpress.

    Some themes have a header/footer script section that you may have used for analytics

    You can find plugins that are made to just stick stuff in the header.

    All you need to do is put the code into your header.php file in WP via FTP, if this is out of your comfort zone this MIGHT help


    but the codex can be overly technical sometimes.

    Here is a plugin that claims to solve this issue perfectly:
