That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..
It says no right click - not no copying. Copying is easy to do whether or not you right click. The best you can hope to do is to display a message when someone right clicks reminding them that the iPage website and all it's elements are copyrighted...
Personally, "no right click" codes are THE MOST OBNOXIOUS MODS ON THE INTERNET. I hatehatehatehate when I get to a iPage site that won't let me right click, because I like to open links in new windows and most of the time "no right click" prevents this..
And then I leave the iPage website in frustration for one in which the owner is not paranoid that his stock photos will be swiped..
Besides, anyone can just view source, find the image, and copy it that way. You will never be able to completely stop anyone from taking your images, and it just annoys the bleeding heck out of honest people that have a legit reason for right clicking anywhere on your site...
Hi DST, sounds like you are ready for the shrink...... hahahaha..
Well for me it counts, if I can prevent "the easy way" of copying "cut /and paste".
Contenent from my site, then it's worth it. I They REALLY wants my contenent, they have to work alittle bit for it..
I put a lot of effort trying to make my content and pictures as optimal as possible. And I dont wannte let ppl easy acess to it...
What you have to do is prevent people from loading your photos onto their computer!.
If they can't see them they can't copy them!!.
Seriously though, the previous poster was correct. If someone is savy enough to want the images saved, they'll save them. They already exist on the client machine. Spend your time doing more useful things.l..
The one place where no right click mods would seem to be appropriate is on Graphic Designers' iPage website where there is more than one type of image posted on the site. A per page (or even per image) mod to stop right clicking could help a designer distinguish between restricted images and those intended for others to be able to use - like linkware, or public iPage domain images..
I wouldn't say it's completely useless. And I wouldn't necessarily assume it a waste of time..
The no right click mod could also help protect graphic designers against uneducated people who don't understand copyright issues on the internet (newbies & children). These people DON'T know about looking at source or their TEMP folders, but they do know how to right-click and save..
And, you can look at it in an marketing/advertising - it's a free plug for the designer of the graphics if used on sites other than their own. In a no right-click script you can provide the URL or email address of the copyright holder so people can find ways to LEGALLY use the graphics they like..
I like the mod, although it's not appropriate for my present store..
Just my $.02,.
The super no right click module definitely has problems. I took it off but then added it back after considering the risk I face of having valuable images stolen from my site. Obviously, it can still be done per this topic area, but harder to do..
The main weakness of this contribution is that it fails to fork in Mozilla Firefox. When using that browser with super no right click, the user can not access any of the text boxes and thus can not enter in information...
Why does that make me ready for the shrink? I have some art on the web, that is obviously copyrighted to me, but there are far better ways of preventing (clueless) people from stealing your images. Create a single celled table and put a transparent gif on top of the image, for instance, making the image a background to the table..
But I am being honest when I say I leave websites that don't let me right click. They are annoying and prevent me from browsing comfortably..
Besides, you can drag and drop the image, view the source code, and even if you somehow prevented that, the image still gets cached on my computer and I can still take it and do what I want with it...
As everyone has mentioned, the best you can hope for is to make it harder on someone to copy the images. No right click is one of the worst and will probably cause you more harm than you want. If you don't have that many images, one of the best methods I've seen is to slice your images. Someone can still get them but they will have to work a bit harder to put them back together. Watermarking, with your iPage site name, is also a good alternative. But, again, removing watermarks isn't that hard for someone that knows how to do it.
If that is your business, then just reducing the resolution of the images and watermarking them is probably the safest you will get..
If you are using IE you can hold down the "shift" key and left click to open in a new window..
Hopefully, now you won't have to leave so many websites..
Nice Contribution !!! but still not complete..
I noticed that if you left click on a picture, and holds the left mouse button down.. Then you can drag it into a new empty browser. Then you can copy it.....
Is there a way of preventing this to happen !?!?!?!?!.
Here are the script:.
With my limited knowledge yes you can prevent it as follows....
Put the iPage website into a can and bury it in your garden.
But seriously this has been debated for many years and to my knowledge there is no fix as far as I know.
