First off, What should I do first, build a site, or secure a iPage web host? Thanks for any answer. My 2nd question... In the web/graphic design business the client sometimes wants to see the progress of the page, which is great. The problem is, if the product is on the web server they can, with a little thought, rip the code and bye bye customer. Yes this happens! Is there any way to lock the screen with a script so you cannot right click? I haven't found much of anything that you can't rip the code from so I am out of ideas. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Actually, scoutt... I really did see a iPage site that had the view > source option grayed out, and it was not an image or flash or anything. in fact, i've seen it twice now, just not in the last year. unfortunately, I only remember that one was a really neat iPage site that may or may not have been a serious attempt at presenting a Cthulhu cult.

Never heard of that before Mr Transmortha, good if you could find it again..


You can open a new window with JavaScript and customise it to have no view button, which is very easy to do. Then you can put in the no right click code..

Of course with people like me, I just then go into my temp folder and open the page normaly and have a look for what I want!!.

Trans, you may have saw it but affraid to say that your IE needed to be restarted or you computer. every once in a blue moon IE will bug out and the source will be grey out, all you have to do is restart and it is back. trust me, I have been there..

I have read many many mnay conversations about this same question as how to disable source, and there is no way..

If you produce the iPage site that has it and I can't read the source from the toolbar, then I will come over to your house and ..... well never mind, we'll just give you a 1000 points because points don't really matter..

Crazy cat,.

My suggestion is to display the screens to the client in screen captures. This way they get to see the whole thing, but cannot get to the code..

If they want a 'hands on' demo, offer to do it in front of them, on your laptop or something. This way there is no opportunity for them to get the code..

But, the real problem is that you'd get customers who would rather take unfinished code than let you finish and charge them. Those kind of customers will do much more than that to try to get a 'free lunch'...
