How to Disable Right-Click Function on Your Blog

I've had a couple of people ask me how I managed to disable the right-click function on my blog.  Whenever anybody right-clicks on my blog, a notification pops up with a message from me.  It's actually extremely simple to do, but I want to be sure that anyone reading this understands that it is not foolproof.  Anybody who knows javascript can circumvent this little trick, but since that requires more work of any potential photo thieves, cyber weirdos, etc, I figure it's worth the two minutes it takes to do.  So here's how . . . .

Just copy then paste the following code into a new html/javascript gadget.  Change my "var message" (in red) to one of your own to personalize the message for your blog.  You can say whatever you like!  Enjoy!

function clickIE4(){

return false;

function clickNS4(e){

if (e.which==2||e.which==3){
return false;

if (document.layers){
else if (document.all&&!document.getElementById){

document.oncontextmenu=new Function("alert(message);return false")
