The right-click mouse button for galleries is blocked, however visitors can right-click standalone images. The best form of protection against the downloading or printing of images from your site would be for you to watermark your images before uploading them.

      Hi firetr,

      In order to allow visitors to upload files, such as resumes, images or documents, through your Wix site, you will need to use an app from our Wix App Market. Check out the available apps below:

       

      1. AnyFile lets you turn your site into a sharing hub, upload files of any size and type.

      For support on this app, you can contact:

      Email: support@petprojektlabs.com

      Website: http://petprojektlabs.com/

       

      2. 123 FormBuilder allows you to create web forms and surveys. Visitors can upload files via a form.

      For support on this app, you can contact:

      Email: support@123contactform.com 
      Website: http://www.123contactform.com/contactus.html

       

      Alternatively, you can direct your visitors to send you the file via email.
       

      Note: Documents that you upload to your own site, are available for visitors to download. To learn how to upload a document, click here.

       

      If you have any further questions please let us know.

    How to protect my web content?

    Hi,

    Can someone tell me how I could protect my scripts and my images on my website?

    How can I prevent anyone from copy-and-pasting?

    And how can I prevent anyone from downloading my images?

    Help will be appreciated.

      Hi cooperationmatters,

       

      Thank you for your question. I've merged your post to a relevant thread regarding this issue.

      There is no feature designed specifically to prevent others from copying and pasting your site's content. 

       

      A way to get around this which works both for text and images is to add a box via the 'Add' button from the left menu in your editor. Next click on 'Shapes & Lines' and lastly 'Box'.

      Make sure to place the box so that it covers the text (or image) and then double click on the box to open it's settings window.

       

      Now click 'Change Style' followed by 'Edit Style' (beside the selected style). Now, under color click on the opacity box of the background and reduce the opacity

      to 0%. This will make the box transparent and therefore show the text clearly.

      Be sure to verify the changes by clicking 'Ok' and save your changes.

       

      Please note that a box will cover your text and therefore, this will disable the ability to click on any linkable text (if you have linked any text).

       

      As mentioned in the best reply above, the right click option is disabled for galleries.

       

      Feel free to contact us with any further question you may have.

      All the best, Ellie

    Indicidualy posted images are right click and copy able.  Images posted utilizing the gallery feature are protected.  This is done by Wix and they have the option of unlocking it.  They set the protection for artists that post copy written material.

      Hi mrobb1,

       

      I noticed you posted in several threads. I apologize for the inconvenience regarding this matter but it is still not possible to enable right clicking in galleries. 

       

      As mentioned to you previously, we do document our users request and suggestions. Priority is determined by our users requests (which is voiced over this forum), along with the capabilities we poses to develop each feature.

       

      Please let us know if you have any further questions we may assist you with.

      All the best, Ellie

      Thanks for your response Ellie.  

      Not sure what you mean by several threads?  I simply started a discussion by following a link that was sent to me by the Wix team via satisfaction survey.  Questions were asked and I responded and then the thread was merged here.

      I fully understand and appreciate why certain people want their images protected and understand that it is possible to enable right clicking in galleries, its a matter of programming.  I am asking that there be a "lock" or "unlock" images feature added when posting images utilizing the gallery feature.  

      Thanks for your consideration.

    Hi,

    This option is already available.

    Right click on an image and select "Save as" to save it to your PC.

    Are you not able to do so?

    Please elaborate on your difficulty.

     

    Awaiting your reply.

    Right click option in gallery!

    Please add the option to allow my website visitors to right click on pictures and copy them for their own use in gallery posts.  This is very important in helping me sell product as it allows my customers to utilize my product images in digital presentations.  Adding picture individually leaves the site looking off kilter and doubles my work load.
