    Surely it's the same weather its a all boys/girls or mixed, I think many users take offence at the 'no right click' ness, and surely you shouldn't be posting pictures that you wouldn't want getting into the wrong hands.

    p.s I HATE no right click as I can't open new tabs on links (something I do on almost every site i visit)

    Main ones i use are Google Maps Component, Zoom Media Gallery and Events Calendar apart from that its pretty much the default ones. Saying this i am working on a new site and making it snazzy with plenty of extensions like the RokSlideshow extension so hopefully that'll be up and running soon .

    How could I forget that one?

    I'd seriously recommend re-enabling the right click. Admittedly I'm a bit of a geek when it comes to usability, but I just think it's madness to stop a user from doing something they can do on 99% of other websites. People use the right click menu far more than you probably realise.

    As for extensions I use - they've all been listed already, apart from eXtplorer and News Highlighter GK1.

    Surely if you desprately wanted to open the links in a new tab then you can just hold down ctrl and click the link...hey presto new tab

    Except not everybody knows that. If users need (or think they need) to right click on a website, but can't, then are they going to Google a shortcut or go exploring their browser menus for another way, or just give up? Unfortunately, it's more likely to be the latter, and you've just lost your user.

    Not a dig at Kamran7860 or alan-d by any means, but I don't think disabling the right click carries a single significant advantage.

    Wow quite a response. I work for a private girlís school and the management have insisted on this being implemented. However what I have done is links going to Webmail, Moodle and other external resources etc automatically open in a new tab. I thought this would be a good compromise as I my self am very heavy tab user. I havenít had any problems with Google maps or any downloadable content. However site isnít finished yet so still up for review.

    What i learnt with web site design is you have to make everything as easy as possible, if you don't people will just ignore your site....

    we had an old site that was difficult to navigate and its bouce rate was 85%. The new slipstreamed site is down to 35- 40%

    Disabling Right click is a annoyance that 90% of people take offence to...

    I made a wiki page for people to input what extentions they use etc (its linked from the edugeek Joomla package page).

    But for what ever reason I can't edit it to add/change its formating (its pretty shoddy atm)
