Did you know that instead of requesting others not to re-blog your content, you can just turn the functionality off?
A while back, I remember a couple of ‘About Me’ sections of blogs requesting not to re-blog their content. Now I’m not sure why they keep that functionality on still (unless they didn’t know that it can be turned off).
I guess from a Twitter user’s perspective, reblogging is similar to retweeting:
That is why I didn’t mind the concept (though I don’t think my content has been reblogged before).
Though I do understand those who choose not to have their content show up on another site (maybe because it is likely that the person who came across a post that has been reblogged, might not visit the site where the content originated from?).
Anyway! Let me stop myself, so I can guide you through the steps required to turn off the reblogging option on your site:
- Go to WP Admin (by clicking My Site —> WP Admin)
- Click on Settings —> Sharing
- Scroll down to the end of the page and select: “Don’t show the Reblog button on posts”
That’s it! 🙂 Hope that lessened your worries today (that someone would share your content without your permission)!
First time visiting? It’ll be great if you head here after reading. 🙂
