Hi guys,

after testing the cs cart for a couple of days and trolling through the forums I have bit the bullet and purchased it last night and am in the process of setting the catalogue etc up right now.

My question is, how possible is it to stop people from being able to right click on the large image and choose save to disk. I have seen this on some sites and while I know that there is a way around that, that is typing the full address of the image into the address bar, I don't think it's actually possible with cscart, I guess because of the php script or something.

Can anyone help mere of recommend another option? I have started adding a watermark logo onto each image but as I have around 250 products and more to come, this is a little tedious.

Thanks guys

Welcome to the community tanyahetoire and good luck with your new store.

It is kinda useless now using a no-right-click script because it is easily defeated but it can be added.

You can disable right clicking by adding this code to /skins/yourskin/customer/index.tpl just above </head> tag

{literal}
<script language=JavaScript>
<!--
function clickIE() {if (document.all) {(message);return false;}}
function clickNS(e) {if
(document.layers||(document.getElementById&&!document.all)) {
if (e.which==2||e.which==3) {(message);return false;}}}
if (document.layers)
{document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);document.onmousedown=clickNS;}
else{document.onmouseup=clickNS;document.oncontextmenu=clickIE;}
document.oncontextmenu=new Function("return false")
// -->
</script>
{/literal}


Watermarking is the best way to go and with the proper tools can be quite painless to process all of your images

Here are some commercial batch image watermarking apps that you might consider.

The no right click stuff works correctly with IE. You can still save images in firefox and other similar browsers even if you have the no right click script on your page. If you really care about images being save or downloaded, just use watermark as suggested above. Just remember the watermark can be work-on...

Watermarking is the way to go, all you need to do with the above script is drag your mouse across the picture, ctrl-c then ctrl-v into something like photoshop.

Also this dosen't protect the large popup image, you'll have to put it into popup_image.tpl aswell.

thanks a lot for your help guys. i have already watermarked my images using the batch autoscript thing in photoshpo. i used the emboss/bevel option that i found someone else use online. As my business is jewellery design there isn't really much I can do to stop someone even just looking at my website while copying my design. They can always do print screen anyway.

Well im using a simple script, noting this complex, but simply works great in..
<body oncontextmenu="return false;">


this works great, and only problem that it doesnt work in Opera, but so does the script provided at the top..

Watermark would probably be the best thing. I do a bit of photography & do all the product photography myself and create watermark with 10% or so opacity so if people wants to use them, fine, but it will have the logo on it.
