Okay, I am a very, very new newbie to building a website. Yola has been great so far. I just have a minor problem. I teach high school history and want to put my powerpoints online so students can review them, especially when they miss a day. I do NOT want them to be able to download, save them, or print them off. Just view the slideshow. If they could print them off I would have a room full of monkeys goofing off because they already have the notes.

Suggestions??? I looked a one suggestion where you copy and paste a line of script at the bottom of the page, but where / in a widget??? HELP!!!!

Thanks, Morgan

Hi Lunmura

Welcome to Yola! I am glad it has worked well for you so far.

We have a discussion on this issue on this thread:

While we generally discourage the practice, I can see how in your case you would like to disable right clicking on your site.

One of our users has posted a script you can use on their site: http://homeandhobbyhelpfulls.synthasi...

To add this to your page:
1) Copy the script
2) Drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page (the icon is a blue sphere)
3) Paste the code and click "ok"

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any difficulty with these instructions.
