Which plugin is best/safest to copy protect (no right click)?

Post by Mike Dammann »

I have seen several, but also read some negative reviews that some may be vulnerable and in other cases "break your site". Do any of you use a plugin preventing right click, copying of content and can recommend that plugin?

Most of the scrapers will get around the best of them.

True, but I'm talking about the average idiot who wants to turn my articles into a Facebook post without linking to me.

I was remiss earlier, A hearty welcome to the forum!

If I were going to pick one for that purpose I would used the one that allows C&P with attribution, similar to what Google does.

I don't do Wordpress so I have no specific recommendations.

While i am an experienced coder, i haven't had to use this type of protection in the past. So i don't have any recommendations, but i did find a WordPress plug-in that seem to do what you want: https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-r ... ck-for-wp/ .

But be careful you may loss some in-links if people can not share a few lines of text from an article on your site and link to you.

If you want me to, i could probably program a JavaScript that disable the right click functionality, but the plug-in is probably the better choice.

What he said above. PIA when you want to write something, quote someone as part of the discussion and of course give attribution to where the quote came from.

There was a plugin around that automatically added the url when one copied a bit of your page. Haven't come across it in a while though.

Here ya go (it's an old article though): How to Add a Read More Link to Copied Text. There is a JavaScript solution in that article but have no idea if it works. I Googled add url to copied text to find that.


Yours truly,

I have seen the JS method but can't say if it is specific to WP.

I would enjoy hearing what you discover.

Here is the JavaScript solution:

Code: Select all

document.addEventListener('contextmenu', event => event.preventDefault());
