They will download the PROCESSED pages, so them downloading makes no difference. There is NO SURE way of stopping that, without just NOT having a site!

Thanks,

You are saying that there is no way that i can stop them for doing that kinda illegal stuff,

Gavy:

The whole nature of client-server (Web) is that pages (including HTML/images) are downloaded to the client and viewed on the client.  If the client is seeing the page, the client can save the page.

As Pablo mentioned...this isn't going to be your CFML.  The CFML is parsed out on the server and converted to HTML.  Just like when you view the source of your page through a browser...all you see is HTML (no CFML).

But as far as preventing the user from saving that HTML...the only surefire way is to keep it offline Smile
