Right-Click Images... okay... BUT.

Right-Click Images... okay... BUT.

If you want to stop image theft by disabling the right-click, okay. It doesn't work but it might make it more difficult for some.

However, the "GO TO FIRST UNREAD POST" is a link and a graphic. My way of viewing the site has been to right-click those and open it in a new tab and it jumps directly to the first unread post. That way I can click right-click, open new tab, and get several topics in different tabs at the newest post.

So can the right-click detector be disabled for the new-post tab?

I've been working on simplifying the code across the site - the right click thing has always been on the rest of Walkhighlands. The idea is not to prevent downloading images, but to prevent people saying they weren't aware that they shouldn't do so.

However it shouldn't really run on the forum and will be removed.

The right click thing is now off the forum.
