What does it do

It inserts some hidden links (back to your forum) into the content of long posts. If someone steals your content, copy & paste a post to other places, there will be at least a link back to the original URL of your site. Good for SEO too.

Since you can't stop content thieves anyway, why not take some advantages?

Install

Step 1: import product-copyright.xml
Step 2: add this to the main css->additional css definition

* for SEO purpose, there is an option to choose links back to a thread or a post.
* the back links will become visiable after copy&paste. if you like them to stay hidden, just open and modify template "copyright"

i do not recommend to do this cause this may be bad for SEO.

Sounds stupid?

Yes, stupid enough. It is so easy to remove the back links. But from my experience, thieves are busy, blind, or more stupider. Most of them won't remove the links. You can't image how many back links i got this way.

You could modify the phrase "copyright_source" to some unique string. And google for it.


Will it hurt my SEO?

I can't promise that. but I think it does more good than evil. You could give your opinions here.

Ok I have an issue, i copied a post longer than 500 words which is what I have set it to. Yet when I paste it, the copyright doesn't show up..

Also how do you know if someone copied a post from ur site? where do you check?

Suggestion: Integrate this with custom pages too, not just forums.

Unhappy

Un-installed.

After some days, I face a problem of losing some of the text from the threads.

I write, for example, 20 lines in the threads & if I post it shows only 3 lines.!!

and i stop this hack.

Note my forum is (3.8.4 Patch Level 1).
