How to Copy Protect your Blogs (WordPress and Blogspot)

You absolutely hate it when you have put so much into writing an article and then some copy blogger copies your content and places them in their blogs and incidentally their blog ranks higher than yours. This actually happened in many cases and it is very important to protect the content of your blogs. There is a simple method to disable text selection and copy options of any content in your blog and this method depends on the type of blogging platform you use.

For a WordPress blog you can achieve this by simply installing a plugin and setting the options according to your requirement.

But for a blogspot or blogger blogs this can be done by manually entering the code in a widget and then placing this widget in any of the widget area.


Copy Protecting a WordPress blog

You can copy protect your content on a WordPress blog by installing a plugin called “WP Copy Protect”. There are many plugins which serves the same purpose but I found this plugin very simple to configure.

In your WordPress dashboard, Select Plugins and Select Add New.

Here search for the plugin WP Copy Protect and install that plugin.

After the plugin is installed and activated, it will appear on the Left Menu.

Now that the plugin is installed and activated, you need to configure the plugin.

To do this, simply click on the plugin and the configuring options appear on the screen. Simply check the following options as shown in the image below

You can even set a custom message to be displayed along with disabling the right click. After you can configured according to your requirements, save the settings and you are done.


Copy Protect a Blogger/Blogspot blog

You can copy protect your blogger/blogspot blog by manually adding a HTML code and placing it in the widget area.

To do this go to your blogger dashboard and in the layout section, click on Add Widget in any of the widget area.

<script type=’text/javascript’> if(typeof document.onselectstart!=”undefined” )
{document.onselectstart=new Function (“return false” ); }
else{document.onmousedown=new Function (“return false” );
document.onmouseup=new Function (“return false”); }
</script><!– End disable copy paste –>

After you have done entering this code give the widget a name and save the settings.

Now you have successfully disabled text selection and right click menu in your wordpress and blogger blogs.
