okay.. So people now are afraid to use live preview to show their work because other people will steal it. Now here is the deal. We will create a flash file which will work as a browser and will load the source and display the content but the user will not be able to view it (the source)

Thats JUST an idea, I am not experienced in flash so IDK if this is possible or not but this may be a solution.

Thanks for reading n sorry for da bad english!

My argument to that is that some buyers want to see the code. I won’t buy a template unless I see the code first to make sure it was coded right. There is no way to stop it, we just have to make the best of it.

But if such a tool was created you could just provide a screenshot of the code. Would be useful!

Maybe there is an way to show the source code as an image inside this “flash browser”, but I really don’t know if it is possible to create such thing.

Yeah, that’s an idea. We’d still be able to inspect part of the source code but it would do a lot to prevent theft. Hmm… I think I’m going to do a little research into this. :-)

I had the same idea when i started here on TF but I don’t have the neccessary knowledge of flash for this. It would be very useful for all authors here I think.
