right click & downloads

Postby wordscribbler » Fri Sep 15, 2017 5:17 pm

I'm new to this and I've looked and gone starry eyed.

Is there by any chance a general setting on Joomla 3x which disables right click downloads.

I've read how there are extensions out there that can do this - but just wondering if this facility is in this CMS itself?

One suggestion I found - and not sure if I understand it or will say it correctly here is:

In the SEO footer code I type <body oncontextmenu="return false;">

ummm, not sure if this applies to Joomla, the only footer thing I have come across is template. I looked through the global settings and other bits - but I just could not work it out.

If you have any suggestions / can help drop me a line - thanks.

oh - that does sound pointless.

Afterwards, I noticed that there are loads of extensions out there that sounds like they may do this - if anyone uses any of them it would be helpful to know what it is and how it works for you. Thanks.

Not sure that people know (or can know) if someone is grabbing their images or not when they have an anti right-click extension installed, but, for some reason, it gives them a sense of false security.

I've not thought of that - just assumed everything that happens - like going from one page to the next on a site, etc. - is counted.

Mandville is correct, if I can see it I can download it,disabling right click is easily defeated
