Apparently there's a problem with the 'protect images' coding. When you right click, you get the popup saying "image protected..." but as soon as you click "OK" on the popup, you get the popup menu to save the image!

try it - http://cgi.ebay.com/Landstroms-Black-Hills-Gold-Mens-Di...Z92845QQcmdZViewItem

Edit to add - if you scroll the page with the mouse before right clicking, then you dont get the popup menu for saving image. If you dont scroll the page with mouse before right-clicking you get the popup menu for saving image.

Sure, there's ways around the disabled right-click, but to go ahead and give the person the popup menu makes the whole disable right-click pointless.

here's some javascript code that appears to work better. From http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=41

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
<!--
var message="Thank you for visiting my site.";
function click(e) {
if (document.all) {
if (event.button==2||event.button==3) {
alert(message);
return false;
}
}
if (document.layers) {
if (e.which == 3) {
alert(message);
return false;
}
}
}
if (document.layers) {
document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
}
document.onmousedown=click;
// -->
</SCRIPT>


Note: the page that this code is from also discusses many other techniques for protecting your images.

bump! auctiva still using bad code!

go to any of my listings (such as the one i posted in OP or this one http://cgi.ebay.com/14K-Black-Hills-Gold-Ladies-Diamond...Z92910QQcmdZViewItem

when the window opens, do NOT use your scrollwheel or click any mouse buttons.

move mouse to preview image of product.

right click

click the OK button on popup message

watch what happens - the right click menu appears to let you save the image!

true, but the code auctiva is using is bad. the code I provided in OP doesnt have the same problem that the auctiva code has.

The reason we do it the way we do it is because our code lets buyers still copy and paste info from your listings. Many buyers like to copy and paste the item # or other info from your listings. We feel this outweighs the side effect you see here. I think in Internet Explorer this menu doesnt come up like it does in Firefox.

Um... yes it does. I can say for 100% sure that the code auctiva uses still allows the menu to appear in IE; I use IE.

Code auctiva uses allows right click menu to appear in IE if you dont use mouse buttons prior to right clicking. Code I put in OP doesnt allow the right click menu to appear.

quote:

In our phase 2 release late this year we'll include watermarking and that will strongly deter if not stop other sellers from copying your images.

true watermarking is better, but the code still really should be fixed.

Does it allow copy and paste? We specifically want to allow buyers to be able to copy and paste text from the listing such as item # or description.


that might be the difference in the coding then. The coding in OP disables right click over entire page, whereas auctiva's only disables it when on an image.

you can still copy/paste using ctrl-c ctrl-v and edit/copy but cant using right click.

here's one with coding in OP used http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8924476708 and as can see, no right click anywhere on page.

and since some like to right click to open links in new window, code in OP might annoy potential bidders.
