Hi Dave, I’ve been using your copyright protection and I love it. However, I would like to exclude a widget, which would allow people to copy and paste a badge onto their own site. Can you please tell me how to exclude that widget? I’m just using a text widget and inserting code. Thank you!
Hi I am using your plugins in my wordpress theme, and it’s working very well, thanks ! My favorite is Copyright protection, it’s great because I use a lot of content !
And now, 15 minutes later, it is working fine. Thanks.
I like the click to enlarge image feature and use it on my many images. I realize that the linked images are easy to copy. Any suggestions on how to make the clicked images more protected?
Just installed and activated wp-copyright-protection on my site. I can still left click, drag, right click and copy text, and can right click and copy images. Using chrome and firefox browsers, version 3.4.2, 2011 theme.
Any help appreciated, my technical understamding of wordpress is very basic, simple answers prefreed.
I really like the concept of your WP-Copyright-Protection plug in but like an earlier commenter, I wish there was a way to disable it on certain pages or links. For example, if I want a reader to be able to copy the code to my blog button so they can add it to their page.
Also, I agree that it would be most useful if images were protected too, without having to go through all previous posts and adding the onclick=”return false;” code.
Are any of these modifications perhaps in the works?
Thanks again for having created this plug in.
Fixed as of latest version.
I was extremely happy with your wp-copywright-protection plugin. But after upgrading Firefox to its latest version, I figured out that no pull-down-menu can be opened…
Disabling the plugin solved the problem, but now my content is unprotected
the plugin also tries to disable the combobox in a form in firefox. any know fix for this one?
Thank you for a great plugin!
Is there a plan to add as a universal feature? Our biggest need to use this plugin is for protection of our images. However, once people realize they can click on and open an image and drag/drop… well, they’ve basically scaled the fence and party’s over for us.
I’d love to have “save complete page” to be blocked or end in blank pages. I have tons of images on my blog, which can generally be copied either by save image feature or by saving the complete page. Simply disabling the right click is not sufficient.
Yes we are planning to add that functionality in the near future.
Is there a way to UNPROTECT specific pages? For instance, I have badges (in HTML text) that I want readers to be able to copy and paste into their own blogs. I’ve created a special page on my nav bar where readers can go to grab the code, but with the WP-COPYRIGHT-PROTECTION plug-in, it doesn’t appear to let them copy the code. Please advise. Thank you!
You can add this to the anchor tag that encapsulates the image:
First of all, thank you so much for creating and sharing with us the Copyright protection plugin. It works perfectly, except in what concerns pictures. As a previous commenter said before, if I click on a picture, it opens it in a new window where it can be copied. So basically no protection for that.
Is there any way to fix this?
Thank you so much for your answer,
Great work Dave
Hi, thanks for this great plugin. the no copy aspect is working for the text on my site, but i am still able to copy/save the photos. any ideas as to what i can do to stop this?
This plug in is just what I was looking for. My teaching website has a lot of personal writing, original ideas, and strategies for teaching. I really needed a way to protect my content and most of the options were flimsy or obnoxious. This plug in integrates perfectly and protects my ideas while still allowing me to share them. Thank you so much.
Best plugin I have ever used. Well done Dave
Great work, a plugin that actually works.
Hi Mr. Lighthart.
I was hoping you could give me a little tiny hand?
I installed it, everything super cool
I can show the correct country name
but how in Zeus’s name do you get to show the little tiny flags?
is it with $echo country_flag?
It’s driving me insane! ))
$server = 'xxxxxx'; // MySQL hostname
$username = 'xxx'; // MySQL username
$password = 'xxxx'; // MySQL password
$dbname = 'xxxxxxx'; // MySQL db name
$db = mysql_connect($server, $username, $password) or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die(mysql_error());

I’m using WP-Copyright-Protection for my website but the image in the articles still can be clicked, opened in a new window, and then can be ‘saved as’. How to prevent this? Thanks!
I’ve been using your great plug-in ‘WP-Copyright-Protection’ without issue, however after upgrading my wordpress theme (Photocrati 4.07) the plug-in causes Internet Explorer to crash. The site’s fine in every other browser, it’s just explorer that now waits on the homepage for a second or two before attempting to redirect and crashing to a white screen.
Use just WP-Stats-DB – big thnx for it! ^^
Other plugins, imho, need forget forget
Try to increase your server’s memory limit as described on this page:
Good work you’re doing.
In my case unfortunately the (automatic) Installation failed – again and again. Everytime I got this message:
“Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 77824 bytes) in /home/maartenprinsen.nl/www/wp-admin/includes/template.php on line 2530″
And I had to delete de wp-stats directory to get WordPress running again.
I was using WordPress version 3.0.4–nl_NL
Manually uploading the pluging got the same result.
thanks for the ip2nation, i finally managed how to use it.
Thank you for such a great web application! Running on my website flawlessly
Im extremely impressed with WP-Stats-Dashboard! Great work Dave!
