No-Right Click on Images WordPress Plugin

I am so excited that I got this to work. Ha. I needed to find a plugin that would simply disallow people to right click and save images. Obviously, I know there are ways around this, but I just wanted a minimal line of defense. I bring you myย No-Right Click on Images Plugin ๐Ÿ™‚

DOWNLOAD

To use, simply save the .zip file above, go to your WordPress dashboard, Plugins > Add New, Upload and upload the .zip file.

There is basically nothing to the script/plugin. I got the JS from Dynamic Drive because I’m an OG and that’s where we used to go for the really cool effects back in the day. Enjoy!

P.S. If you run into any errors, let me know. It seems to work on mine very well, but you never know!!

WordPress/Jetpack Social Network Icons

Let me just start by saying that I love Jetpack. It’s probably my most favorite plugin for WordPress because it adds so many options, tons of flexibility, and allows you to really customize your WordPress sites. A lot of tutorials, codes, themes, etc. that I use here at Angelica*Made will likely use Jetpack.

Of course, this little tidbit is no exception! If you would like to style your Jetpack-enabled, social network widget you will need a couple things to make it happen…

YOU WILL NEED:

  • WordPress equipped with Jetpack
  • Jetpack activated with
    • Custom CSS enabled
    • Extended Widgets enabled
    • Social Sharing enabled
  • My little code (posted in this article)
  • My color picker (optional)

LET’S DO THIS:

    • Jetpack needs to be activated on your WordPress install with custom css, social sharing, and extended widgets enabled
    • Copy my code:

  • The color: #FF0954ย is a hot pink. You can change it to any color you want by changing that hex value. (Here’s where you can find a custom color!!!)
  • Go to your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to Appearance > Edit CSS
  • You will have a happy welcome message there if you haven’t messed with the CSS yet… just paste the code right in there!
  • Save!
  • Oh, and add the social network widget to your sidebars/footers/etc. Hehe.

Here’s how mine looks at the moment:

socialicons

Play around with the settings and stuff if you want to get adventurous and sort of know what you’re doing. Or, feel free to message me and I can work up a custom code for you ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you would like the icons to look like the official icons, you can copy this code instead:

Happy blogging and styling!

Color Picker That You Can Embed!

Go ahead and choose a color to use! Grab the hex code and plug it in to any of my codes (where allowed). If you dig it, you can get my embed code to put it on your site for visitors ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!!!

Embed It On Your Site

You can copy/paste this code anywhere on your website. This is a script that I created to be embedded on others’ sites.

Back to shhhchool.

Every year that I have a happy school year, I always sing Billy Madison’s back to school. I don’t know why, but it makes me feel really pumped and excited for the school year. Truth be told, I haven’t sang it since 2007 when I had my last meaningful college year. (I moved to Ohio and have been so depressed that I can’t focus.) Anyway, so I was loading up my classes online and singing the ENTIRE Billy Madison song as if it were second nature to me. I really hope to be successful this semester and year because I want Eleanor to see it can be done!

My classes seem like they’re going to be fun and engaging. Currently, I’m enrolled in a critical thinking class, sociology, and meteorology. I’m very excited for all of these for different reasons, but I think the one I’m most excited about is philosophy but that won’t start until October. I have my little desk all set up, I have my books and supplies all organized, and I have my assignments written down like fourteen times so I cannot lose track of it. I use to be able to remember what needed to be done, but life and motherhood have taken a toll on my remembery (memory for you non-hip folks).

My new website that I’m not calling my blog.

Obviously, if you are a friend or family member on my Facebook, you have noticed my bouncing around from website to website. I’m not going to lie, I’m having a major identity crisis. I have gone from running a fairly successful blog, to being ambushed and attacked for my feelings, and now I’m dwindling in the wind trying to get my bearings. I hate that people were able to get under my skin like that. I hate when I have to fight back. I hate having to remain stoic when I just want to crawl into a hole and cry myself to death. But, that’s what I was faced with and am still faced with.

I decided I don’t necessarily want a blog anymore. I don’t want to tell people my feelings especially since, in the wrong hands, those emotions and thoughts can and will be used against me. I have been blogging for fourteen years; I have been threatened with lawsuits by family, friends, and boyfriends along the way. I have dealt with it all (or so I thought) and I knew my rights as a blogger. One of those rights, I thought, was being able to spew out my feelings without anyone firing back. Well, someone finally did it. The people whom I thought were the closest in my life, when I finally told them how I really felt, threw everything they could in my face. I’m so angry about it. I will probably be angry for the rest of my life for that is the curse of the Scorpio. (Let me set the record straight — warning: harsh language and I might hurt some feelies.)

Feeling depressed, angry, and like I’m a compete failure, I had nowhere to turn. I had no blog I could write on because I was attacked through it. I had no family that I could run to because all of them are biased. I had no friends I could turn to because who really wants to listen to the story all over again? Except Dusty. That girl is my rock. I never met her. I became friends with her on MySpace through one of my best friends in high school. Dusty is always there for me; lord am I thankful for her.

At any rate, I was destitute. Not really, but kind of. I bounced from site to site, trying to find a way to be myself again. Finally, it came to me. “Angelica*Made”. A site for me, by me, and where I could post my ideas, thoughts, creations… As dumb as it sounds, I was assessing where I am in my blogging life and I think I am passed the whole “blog” thing. I don’t want to let people know I’m hurting and sad anymore. I do, however, want to share things still. I want to share recipes, tutorials, codes, and website stuff. So, here it is! Angelica*Made is my new home and I’m going to stay here. ๐Ÿ™‚
