flash player plug in

  1. wondersofbackroads

    where can i find the flash player plug in to protect my images from copying?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Have you read this? code There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins into them The themes found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software. vs The Differences

    I recommend watermarking your images. See here also for a great tip from devblog >

  3. Edit: 2ns sentence
    "themes" was meant to be "plugins" (the same applies to themes though as well)

  4. wondersofbackroads

    well my friend has wordpress of her own, she got the flash player plug in through here and her images are protected. she doesn't have to watermark them.

  5. Your friend is then not hosted at wordpress.COM, but self-hosted. You can install plugins on self-hosted site. Self-hosting will run you about $10 to $25 per month generally depending on your requirements.

    Also, do not think that flash will magically protect your images from theft. Anything can be gotten around.

    self-hosting means you own your domain, right?

  7. It is more than that. Yes, you have to have your own domain name, but you also need to hire a web host such as godaddy, bluehost, etc., and install and configure the wordpress.ORG software at your web host. You are then completely responsible for your site. You have to do all installations, all upgrades, all backups and all troubleshooting. If something goes wrong, you have to figure it out and fix it. Here at wordpress.COM, virtually all of that is handled for you so all you have to do is blog.

  8. Before hitting reply, I should say that self-hosting a wordpress installation is far easier than it used to be. Upgrades, plugin and theme installations and upgrades can be done almost automatically, but you should know that the process, just like about anything in life, can sometimes break down and then you have to dig into things to fix the issue. In my experience, the process has been virtually painless, but I also end up fixing a good number of sites where things go wrong. It is part of how I make my living.

    If you hire a web host and set up a install then you can export content out of your free hosted blog and import it into your new install.

    thats awesome, thank you @timethief and @thesacredpath for answering my questions. I will probably be here to ask you both some stupid questions in near future. :)

  14. wondersofbackroads

    by the way which web host do you think will be best?

  15. @throughchristyseyes, there are no stupid questions. :)

    I use A Small Orange and have been very happy with them. They are very reasonably priced, have great customer and technical support and have been super reliable. They have a "Tiny" shared hosting plan that will do most bloggers very nicely at $25 per year.

    There is also recommended hosting over on the wordpress.ORG site.

  16. wondersofbackroads

    i will check that out, thank you @thesacredpath. :)

    Best wishes with you new site. :)
