As you probably know, vBulletin supports sticky threads, so once the post pattern becomes more clear, the mods and I will be posting FAQs that remain always in view. Disable source code/right click definitely will be among the questions.
You might be able to stop n00bs from getting to it for a while, but any one dedicated will get to it. Flash can be cracked, Java can be decompiled, right click scripts don't work, neither does new windows without tool bars, any trick out there has been tried and broken.
why lock or stop ppl from viewing the source codes?
i dont really understand why some people lock or block others from viewing the source codes, but isn't it obviously rare people would do that.
i thought most people learnt alot by viewing the source codes on webpages, anyway if it were to be a high-profile, govermental agencies wif lots of things to hide.... I guess that would be a good reason.
oh btw, i had checked gordo's reference site. I would like to mentioned that I am currently using I.E 6.0 any although one may locked the site by not being able to right click, there are some images there and when I moved my mouse over the image, there are options to where I am still able to resize and\or save the pics, of course this option in I.E 6.0 for windows can be disable.
Again, I think is vain trying to lock the source code
The irony of trying to protect source code is that it actually works, though not the ways intended of the designer. When I encounter a site that employs a right-click hindering script, I always get the feeling that the designer must be much ashamed of his code. And most often this is the case, once you get past around the pathetic attempts to guard against doing so. As the result, I don't bother with such sites any longer and let their URLs fall into oblivion.
IMO the wish to protect one's source code arises from the fact that one wants to hide ugly code.
