    Hi guys,

    I have a question. I have been using wordpress for about a year. I would like to know if anyone has a MOD, that would disable any right-clicks, and block any graphic captures to my site?? Thanks...

    Also, if I can simply use a copy and paste javascript, that would be cool too. Thanks..

    This is a question that comes up often in various discussions. The short answer is there is nothing you can do to fully block image theft with a right click block. All images will appear in the browsers cache, and therefore can be retrieved. True - a .js script can stop people who are not that computer literate and don't think of the cacge issue, but it's likely anyone of a mind to steal images knows how to circumvent same.

    If the theft of your images is of that much concern it is better to use a watermark on them to make them useless for other purposes.

    You could also edit your .htaccess file to "prevent" downloading of your images, but ... they are still in the browser cache.

    Thank you so much my friend. You are totally right. I forgot about the browser cache.
