Hi,

We all have borrowed content at one time or another, off the internet, whether we care to admit it or not. I got such a hollering from Diane Scorpio early on here, that I thankfully changed my ways for the better. Thank you, Diane.

But I will NOT allow that off of my website. Haha.

So, folks, I am looking for the best plugin that I could use to ensure that no one copies my articles from my website.

Would request suggestions, please.

Regards,

Aps

Yep, I use the WP Content Copy Protection plugin.
One of the great features is that you can set it so nothing will get copied via right click, hot keys, etc.
Downside (for me anyways) is you can't copy paste your own content while in admin.

Initially, you could, but now that is a premium feature.

My suggestion is to disable the plugin while working, and activate pkugin before leaving admin.

I use the same plugin, Rudy. It works great.

Wow!!! Aparna. Thank you for posting this question. I just followed the suggestion by Roy (roysinOnline), your suggestion is a gem. I just added the 'WP Content Copy Protection & No Right Click' plug-in, installed it, checked it and it's working showing an "Alert. Content is protected" pop-up on attempting to highlight & copy a paragraph on one of my website posts... Totally fantastic and to play to your photo, "I'll drink to that!"
Thank you.
- Ron

Yes, you can also edit that popup warning in both text content and colors.

I did that too Ron. We get such great advice here.

why not just add in the middle of your article a link saying that this content is from xx site with a link
so if someone does steal it - as you used to - then they will probably not change any of the links - so you gat a link back to your site
anyone reading hte article may click on the link and be taken to your site.....
i get really frustrated with sites with the right click disabled
if i want to copy and search in google for more info on a topic i can't ...so end up leaving that site.....
have fun

Hi - I once saw a site here where he had copied all his content from another member, but didn't change the WA links to his own, so the other member would get all the referrals!

Hi - That is not funny! It should be dealt with immediately? Does that really happen?😲😲😲

Hi - yes, I advised him to remove the content and he was also reported to Kyle.

That's an interesting take on the issue.

I use a little script. It gives a warning. Al though pro's can work around it. It works in most times. And it saves you a plugin.

Hi Aparna

It's a good question, and one that hasn't previously sprung to my mind . . . . .

To be honest, I'm not sure at this stage whether I care too much if someone copies my content. It is probably a form of flattery.

Like when I wrote a submission to the government, and a couple of Ministers started quoting from it when they were addressing conferences.

But I'm new and inexperienced here, so I will ask you the question - why should I care if anybody copies my content?

Kind regards, Wazza

Hi, of course you'd care this is your work, work you sweated at and created. Do you think it is okay for someone to copy and publish it elsewhere?

That's a good question.

I think it's the scare of Google punishing you if they see two identical articles.

But, Google knows which one is the original, so there's no reason to be scared.

Unless I'm wrong... But let's wait for others to give their point

It happened to me, and I never copy articles, so I was amazed about that.

You are not wrong. Google knows the canonical.
