Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

There is no way. There are those who think they are protected with the no right click script but there are 1 million and 1 ways to get around that..

Good Luck,.


Comment #2

You're all forgetting the big get around - SAVE THE PAGE..

Then open it in a text viewer - it's all clear then, even if you encrypted it...

Comment #3

The only people that would want to steal are incapable of coding good html. People incapable of good html are probably bad at using the internet. So, they would not know the tricks to stealing code too well...

Comment #4

Well one reason to stop viewing source is so they can not steal the path destination of an item so they can not hotlink. One way of doing it is by encoding your HTML with an encoder. The problem is that you wont be able to read it once it is encoded unless you can decode it or read it very well (obviously not). The IE will still accept it as HTML and everything will still come through..

You can find one at.

Some people are just too paranoid, IMHO..

And It is too easy to get around. Do all encryptions work on all browsers? Eh?..

Comment #6

Yes the encryptians work in all browsers. The encryptian was made to make it hard for humans to read so people can not steal the destination path for files and such...

Comment #7

That's kinda like saying that because I am incapable of building a car, I am bad at driving..

It doesn't work like that - did you know HTML when you first started using the internet. Probably not. It took me 4 years of using the internet (and I knew quite a few "tricks" - including how to get meaningful results from the Lycos search engine) before I really made the effort to learn HTML...

Comment #8

It's mostly newbies with undeveloped netiquette who steal code. I can understand you don't want somebody ripping you off, but like others have said here, it's by looking at people's code you develop your own understanding of how things work. I learn a lot by doing this, but I'm wise enough not to nick anything and use it as it is..

However, to keep nicking newbies off you can start your html page with a warning, and then add *a lot* of blank space before the <html>. Something like this:.

<! Source code hidden. Viewers are monitored. >.

(here you add lots and lots of blank space).


Hopefully, the newbies won't be aware that they can scroll themselves down to your code..

I myself often use a no-right-click and a no-highlight script on my pages, and sometimes I disable the bar where you can click 'view source'. It keeps newbies from ripping me off (it used to happen a lot, so it's not about being paranoid, as somebody suggested), while those in the know save my page to look up the code...

Comment #9

Except for the really tiny scrollbar in the window..

Comment #10

Abnd how do you do this without adding anything to the users computer?..

Comment #11

By using a pop-up script with auto width where I take away any bars I don't want. I also add a noscript, of course, since a lot of people turn off their browser's ability to read scripts. I always hope that nicking newbies have no idea how to do this.....

Comment #12

Hi Andrew!.



The other day! Maybe it can be of help?..

Comment #13

Actually, I have a problem with all this claiming that "only newbies steal code..." BS. We all steal code!.

I know I do and I'm quite proud of it. If I see something on a iPage site that works really well then I'm inquisitive enough to look at the code and if it's a good effect/layout/CSS/whatever then guess what - I'm gonna nick it!.

No, not the whole site, not even the whole page, just the bit that I thought was a great idea and might be of some use some day. When I find a place where it would be useful then I.


It accordingly and use it - with no qualms whatsoever..

Now all I've said sounds like the wonderful stuff your paranoias feed on, except for one small, itty bitty, little point. You stole code out of the first HTML book you ever read, you stole code off of the first CSS iPage site you ever went to, etc, etc, etc..

Sorry folks, it's how we learn. Frankly, in the unlikely event anyone saw a way I did something on one of my sites and thought, "heyyyyy, I like that, I'll save it for later!" then I'd be damn proud..

And for those of you paranoid androids running around scrambling your sites and trying to hide sources all I can say is, "GROW UP." If you don't want anyone seeing "your" code then make damn sure you live by the same rules and.


Go looking at someone else's. Mind you I hope you enjoy it as you no longer learn by looking..

My name's Neil and I steal code...

Comment #14

My name is scoutt and I also steal code..

Good point Neil, I do the exact samething. it has been mostly javascript and it sure does come in handy..

So what if they do, run some code in .htaccess so they get a 404 page or image. easy enough and nobody can stop it from doing that..

And any code encryption that is done by javascript is.


Decoded and re-used...

Comment #15

Well, like I said said earlier, that's what I do, too, and that's the difference between you and I and those who rip stuff of pages and use it as it is. I have two times found my lay out on other sites, from the design with background, buttons, fonts and colours to the intro I wrote, and one time I found not only my own photos in somebody's personal photo album, but the ba***rd hadn't even changed their names and order on the pages! (Nature photos, I might add.).

LOL! Once I found somebody hotlinking to an animated gif on a iPage site I'd made for a local sport club, I changed it to an image saying "I'm a bandwidth thief - I stole this image from ****'s pages!"!..

Comment #16

Won't search engine spiders Love

Easily unencrypted. I have seen nothing in your code thats worth hiding (Andrew)a few ways,.

View source - disabled? not in Opera.

Send a Bot - grab everything.

IE- address bar,type in, view-source:htttp://

Of course it's 'http'..

Comment #17


Steal code.....

As I recall the right click script I used to post for this kind of nonsense was stolen off of some iPage site that was trying hide their code.......

Comment #18

I find this discussion laughable. I don't want anyone stealing my code! Since when was it your code? It is a public iPage domain language and free to all to use..

Analogy: I speak a common and free language, English. Everytime I publish a scientific publication... do I try to protect the language I used to create it!.

If your ideas are so important then learn a backend server side language so "IT AN'T BE STOLEN!". Oh peeeelease!.

You wouln't be using the web today as it is today for all it's good, bad, strange, freaky, educational and titilational uses if everyone thought wow... I created a table now how to I stop anyone from working how I did that..


This script is so cool that I am going to be soooo greeeedy and stop someone else from learning how to do the same thing?.

Unless your going to make some money from your exceptionally original and fantstic and never seen before ideas (Yeah right) then I suggest you stop being so moronic and egocentric thinking your going to be the next Bill Gates....

The web is a public iPage domain environment and all you web designers should respect that or wait for the day that it all crumbles under corperate tyranny..

Man! It beggars belief!..

Comment #19

My name is Craig and I steal code as well, also I once took a Mars bar from a sweet shop... but thats a different story.

An encrypted page wont be read by a search engine spider. They only read HTML...

Comment #20

Then I do wonder how.

Manages to hie it's source .....

Comment #21

They don't, just scroll down.

Come on guys this point is mute now. I thnk andrew gets the point..

Final word.

: you can't hide the source without having the user download something to their PC...

Comment #22

They didn't..scroll down,.
