Blogger Copying prevention Widget

To prevent unwanted people from lifting off your hard written content from blogger, I have written a simple JavaScript widget to digitally lock the content together. The code simply prevents people from using right-click and select text function of the browsers.

To install the Braniac DigiLock:

Installing Instructions:
Use the one click express installer button on the sidebar of Sidoscope, add the widget to your sidebar and it will create a image of lock as above on your sidebar, which can be moved to any corner of the page.

If you have too many widgets on your blog, it is recommended that you move the code on top so that it loads faster than the wi


1) Is this 100% foolproof method to protect the blog?
This may not be a 100% foolproof method but it does make the content stealing harder from your blog.

2) What does this code actually do?
The code simply takes control of the browser and prevents the overrides the text selection button and right-click function of the blog. It also adds a small image to your sidebar, which links to the installer of the code so that your friend bloggers can know.

3) I want people to select text but I do not want them to copy images.
Please email me your id, I will send you the code.

4) What all browsers does it code work?
The code has been tested on IE 6, 7, 8, Mozilla 3.5 +, Chrome, Opera and Safari on windows and Linux, however I cannot assure you if this works on all browsers existing. They should work on browser working on DOM model, in simple words, test it on your browser and give me feedback. 

5) Does this code protect my content everywhere?
This code only protects your blog, your content can be picked up by search engine, your feeds and other places also like, these loopholes you have to take care of. 

6) Will my blog crash with the code.
I have myself used it in my blog, it has not crashed. Even if it does tamper-hamper or destroy your blog, remove the widget from it,

7) Can I use it on WordPress also.
I myself have not able to understand Wordpress, but my friend Pramathesh has managed to install it on his blog. Please contact him.

8) Do I need to link the image to your blog.
My blog has the installer on it, I would suggest you to keep the link open so that others can also be benefited by the code.

9) What are the ways I can still overcome the widget and copy content.
Meet me in person, I would like to see you and take your mug shot for future reference.

10) Why don't you charge for this.
This code is not a rocket science it is a simple Javascript, I am a blogger myself and I don't like people stealing off stuff from my blog. I do accept donations thought.

The curious case of the custom redirection on Salesforce Console

Every developer worth their salt knows that the easiest way of redirection from a page to another is by using everyone's favorite function

public PageReference redirect() { PageReference pageRef = page.peskyProblemRedirection; pageRef.setRedirect(true); return pageRef; }
And the method is called by adding it to the Action attribute of the CommandButton or link, which works like charm and the user is redirected to the page after completion of the action.
So why am I going back to the basics? Because this way of redirection causes a pesky little problem in using the Service Cloud or Sales Cloud console.

Let's illustrate the problem, let's say you have a visualforce page as follows:

<apex:page sidebar="false" showHeader="false" controller="myExampleController"> <apex:form > <apex:pageBlock > <apex:pageBlockButtons > <apex:commandButton action="{!Redirect}&qu…

Some PDF tricks on Visualforce: Landscape, A4, page number and more

The beauty of Visualforce is simplicity. Remember the shock you received when you were told the entire page renders as PDF if you just add renderAs=PDF to the Page tag.

For those who thought I spoke alien language right now, here is the trick, to render a page as PDF, we add a simple attribute to the <apex: page> tag

<apex: page renderAs='pdf'> This will render the entire page as PDF.

Now, say we need to add some extra features to the PDF. Like a page number in the footer or we need to render the page in landscape mode. Faced with this problem, I put on my Indiana Jones hat and went hunting for it in the vast hay-sack of the internet (read: googled extensively). Imagine my happiness when i found a big big page with many big big examples to solve the problem. The document I am referring to is from W3C, paged Box media.

Long story short, I now possess the ultimate secret of rendering the page in any format I want. So here are few tricks I learned from the page. To p…

Cache me if you can: What you should know before daring to set URL parameter on visualforce

If someone gave me a pence for every time there was an SOQL query in an APEX Class without using Limit or a condition during a code review, I could afford a Lamborgini this month. Sigh. If only. We make it a habit of going digging for data, at the very moment we need it. The crux of this problem happens when you have chain classes which are independent of each other. Each class needs the reference from a single record and we have to query for that record every single time.

While we don't see it, every SOQL query has a cost to it, and it does not go in my Lamborghini fund, however, it should. In a recent project, we had to construct an Account 360 page that could fetch information from different integration points. The page was also called using a live telephony integration, which could pass the phone number for the account. This required an ability to keep in context the Account that was on call.

Passing the Account id in URL parameter was a valid option, however, any manipulatio…
