Have you stumbled across a website (WordPress or otherwise) where you (shockingly) see the content that you sweated bullets over to write? I know I have, and I’ve had a few clients tell me that they’ve seen their content out there on other sites as well.
Most people are pretty honest and wouldn’t think of stealing your content, but unless you take measures to prevent someone from copying and then pasting your content onto their site, your site is free game for the dishonest of the world.
But there is a solution to prevent those who are brazen enough to copy and paste
plagiarize your content.
There are two very simple little WordPress plugins called Blog Protector and WP-CopyProtect that:
- disable right click on your site.
- disable selection of text on your site
No more highlighting text, copying
stealing and pasting from your site.
To install either of these plugins, go to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Plugins –> Add New. Then type Blog Protector or WP-Copyprotect into the search box. Install it and voila! Just one more level of protection for your business.
PS If you install the WP-Copyprotect plugin, you can customize the message that people will see when they right click. That could be rather satisfying…
