Are you sick of right-clickers?  Me too.  I'm gonna show you the short and sweet of how to disable right click on your ning using a jquery code. You can also use this code to add a custom context menu to your site, but we won't go into that here at this time.  This code detects right-clickers.

 

x$(document).bind("contextmenu",function(e){
    //you can enter your code here, e.g a menu list
         
    //cancel the default context menu
    return false;
});

 

add this to your custom code box and exterminate right clickers

 

You may want to roll over to homey TJ's site jqueryhelp.ning.com for a beginners guide to jquery, if you're lost..

  • Thanks J. But is the code supposed to be vertical like how you have it here? Doesn't seem to work. 

  • Hi J!

    Thanks for the link! :-)

    I haven't tried the code but it looks about right.  Maybe should be x$ though, for here at Ning, right?  And needs to be inside script tags, as my Beginners Guide explains. http://jqueryhelp.ning.com/forum/topics/beginners-guide-to-jquery-and

    This should do the job; very nice!!!

    Best wishes!

    • Not working here. Shouldn't be surprised since G Mail is giving me a 502 Error. Seems to be the day for these things.

    • I don't have this code on my site.  Is that what you meant?  LoL sorry if I misunderstood!

      I was just saying that Ning uses x$ for jQuery, not the normal $ alone that most other sites use for jQuery code.  So for this to work on a Ning site, maybe it needs to be:

       

      <script type="text/javascript">

      x$(document).bind("contextmenu",function(e){
          //you can enter your code here, e.g a menu list
              
          //cancel the default context menu
          return false;
      });

      </script>

       

      Best wishes!

      • Ha! It works! Thanks once again TJ!

         

        Happy time!

      • @Kris Oh Okay, I understand now!

         

        @Flint  Ning still uses x$.  Maybe the site you mention calls another version of the jQuery library.

         

        If you View Source on any Ning site, you'll find a line near the bottom:

         

        <script type="text/javascript" src="https://static.ning.com/socialnetworkmain/widgets/lib/core.min.js?v=201109221813"></script>

        If you take a look at that core.min.js you will see:

        /* This file is auto-generated. Do not edit it directly. What's inside: jquery (as x$()), jquery.json, dojo-adapter */ if(window.bzplcm)window.bzplcm.ts('js');
        /*!
        * jQuery JavaScript Library v1.6.2
        * http://jquery.com/
        *

        So we still need to use x$ here. I just tried a little code on my site using $ rather than x$ and in the FireFox Error console, I saw:
        $ is not a function

        So maybe you bring in the jQuery library with a line like this:
        <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

        Then the code with $ alone will work fine.
        Best wishes!

      • Thanks TJ...this one worked and thank you JFarrow for the great idea! This just solved a big problem I was having with another site creator "grabbing" my images and gifs without asking....Geez...whatever happened to "can I use that please?" and we all know what the answer would have been...-yes

      • Hi TJ!

        Where exactly would I need to place this code to prevent someone from right clicking on my Network background and/or my main page?  Would this affect Groups as well (not wanting it to). 

        Also, would I need to place this separately on my personal page as well?

        Thanks For Your Time,

        Cautious

        • Hi Cautious,

          This code, which should go in your Custom Code box (also known as Analytics box), should work anywhere on your site.  But I haven't used it on my site so I can't say for sure.  If you want it to not work on Groups, this might work:

          <script type="text/javascript">

          var curloc = window.location.href + '';

          if (curloc.indexOf('/group/') == -1) {

          x$(document).bind("contextmenu",function(e){
              return false;
          });

          }

          </script>

          Best wishes!

          • I apologize for not responding sooner but I've been really working hard revamping before reopening my network.  I've learned more in the past three days then I have the entire time I've been on Creators.  The 2nd time around will be awesome. 

            I have copied this code TJ and will indeed, try it out soon.

            Thanks For Your Help! (you too JFarrow)

            Cautious
