Wow this thread blew up, which I assumed it would being a controvestial topic, but much faster than it did.
First, I apologise for posting it as it seems it has been posted before. Secondly, I apologise for all the spelling mistakes as it was early in the morning for me.
So I have a few questions and answers that are in the order of the posts:
1.) What does saving and viewing a page mean? I can see how one can do that with viewsource, but I do not understand how blocking viewsource has anything to do with allowing one to save and view; in fact, it does the opposite.
If there was, I could always save the page to my site and view it.
2.) I can see how this would seem related to my html include thread but not they are not related. In my years of web design, I have always wondered if preventing view source was possible.
3.) r937, why should I pretend you wrote this tomorrow? Are you not supposed to be on sp forums?
You’d be wasting your time ‘trying’ other than possibly outwitting or slowing complete newbie amateurs stealing your HTML/CSS source code.
I though so. Its just that I have been working really hard on one of my projects for a client and I know it sounds pompous, but I would hate for someone to just steal my design or code.
Because, said client, has told me that visitors of his site had asked if they could use it the layout and code or some that just stole it and he found it on the web. Thus, he created a flash site to prevent view source and now he wants an actual modern and innovative site and hired me.
5.) haha I lol’d too when I saw that viewsource=“no” because I thought that there is no way that it is proper or real syntax. :D:rofl:
Thank you for all your help though, do you guys have any other recommendations?
Or if you have any more question or comments, feel free to post.
