I purchased the Pro and I am not happy with it. Reasons: I cannot select images ONLY. I cannot select a pop-up window or no pop-up. To bad that the plugin does not let us select “disable for images ONLY.” (I know they still can be stolen from the source! I am well aware of that.) That is a major downgrade for that plugin. Just disabling for images with or without a pop-up window warning would be great. I actually do not need a pop-up window either. To combine disabling images with text included in the Pro version is a big NO GO. Everybody uses right-click to open several pages within a website! Sorry about that, but that is how it is for me. Cheers Anette PS that plugin will go out of my website when I have found a good plugin which lets me select “disable images right-click ONLY”

Unfortunately, this latest update (Feb 2020) has broken the plugin so it no longer works at all anymore. 🙁 Worked great for over a year, but now that the update has broken the plugin, you can totally copy paste from the website again. There’s no longer any dialogue box that appears when you try to copy paste, the right click button works (even tho it’s supposed to be turned off, and you can definitely copy paste to your heart’s desire.) I tested the plugin on my website *right before* updating the plugin and it worked great, as usual. Then literally the instant I updated to the new version, the plugin no longer works. I contacted their customer support a week ago, but still no response from them …. So now I’ll have to install another plugin that will do what this one used to do fabulously…. If they can fix whatever broke, this is usually a good plugin… for now, until I can find another plugin, I”ve rolled my website back to just before the update (I do backups on my site every day, so it was easy to revert back) but I’d skip this plugin for now … at least until they fix whatever got broken with the latest update! 🙂

I don’t know if this task is a big deal but what i miss is the possibility to change at least the displayed text. Changing the colors is the second thing i miss. But it is a very useful plugin for a designers showcase like mine: Moderator note: Link redacted from reviews.
