Protecting Your Website

Last Update: August 28, 2018

Protecting Your Website Content

I don’t know how many times I have been asked to take a looksee at WA members sites and found great sites with fantastic pics and images and the text content second to none.

Anyone browsing through these sites would soon realize that there has been a lot of hard work and effort put into creating them.

Do you know what’s not fantastic about all this creativity?

The owners of these great sites have missed out one very important component after they have built them.

They have not protected their work.

This means that anyone who has a mind to can come along, highlight any and all the text they want and use it for themselves. The same goes for any pics/images.

Of course you might be well pleased that someone likes what you have created so much they have copied it. Ok be pleased but why should someone else get the benefit of your hard work, and what’s more important. Why should they get paid for something that belongs to you and could have cost you many hours of blood, sweat and tears to create, and how do you stop this from happening?

The answer is simple. Protect your site, and to that end below are the instructions to do so.


In Wordpress go in to your Plugins section

Click on ADD NEW

Type in the search box - Wordpress Protection

You will get a choice

The first one is usually considered the best

I always use

Wordpress Protection Lite

Once you have your choice installed

Click on its Settings and

Tick or Untick the things you want or don't want the plugin to do

For example

No Right Click

No Copy and Paste

Once you're happy with it

Click Update

Go to your site and test it out and if it works then your site is now protected.

This protection will not affect any links you have on your pages/posts. You or your visitors will still be able to follow them.


Have an excellent day or evening people and leave a comment below to let me know that what I have said in this blog has not fallen on deaf ears.


If you have difficulty finding the plugin then here is the direct link to download it -

No Probs. Make sure you use something to protect your site asap and if not the one I mention then there are others.

Jean I'm almost sure I told you how to do this a wee while ago or maybe it was something else entirely.
I'm getting on a bit now and the memory does tend to go as you get older lol.
Have a nice day or maybe evening over there in South Africa.
It is SA isn't it?
See the memory is definitely going lol.
