(deutsche Version)


The so-called theft of digitally published contents by copying without naming the source is a known annoyance. WP-PasteExtender, a plug-in for the blogging platform WordPress, is meant to fight it by automatically adding a reference to the original page to excerpts copied by the visitors. Formatting of the attached string is entirely configurable.

Known issues

The code (currently) only works with the WebKit engine, still needs some more development.


The newest version is available here.


A test installation of the plug-in is currently running on https://mtv-hornburg.de. If you want to test it, copy any text from the website and paste it elsewhere, for example into your favorite text editor.
