Is it possible to make a WordPress site anti-clonable? If yes, does any plugin already exist for this? If no, are you or a developer you know able to implement an anticlone function from the backend or control panel of a WordPress site?

First of all, anyone can just download the html + css + js design, it won't function normally because they can't download the original php files. but if you make a custom made wordpress appearance with a good plugin like Elementor, it would be at least unique enough so people won't copy it. but in the end - in the internet everything a user see is downloadable - web pages, videos, audio, etc.

It's quite simple actually. whenever a user types a web address in his browser, the browser actually downloads the entire web page he is viewing to his personal computer in order to display it (this is stored in Temporary Internet Files). Video and Audio sometimes get streamed (like in Youtube/Facebook for example) but anyone can use a downloader to download the video or audio even if it's streamed. so basically, put aside server-side files like .php or .asp, any .html, .css, .js files a user see in your web page - he can click on "View Source" and copy-paste the web site code. Note that javascript has encoding possibilities so you can hide it's code (unless it gets decoded by someone who knows what he is doing), at least.

Only if you use a wp site that requires a subscription to access the content.
It will be hidden with no SEO value but it won't be downloadable from the outside.

No way, if it's out there on the internet, it can be cloned (not on a click of a button) but can be rebuilt around same lines.

Nope, there is not way to make your wordpress anti-clonable.

You can block right click, but that won't help much. If there any anti-clonable none website as leaked until today...

You can prevent copying from your site.

Cloning a site on your own is a daunting task. But don’t worry, there are created guide with detailed instructions on how to clone a site. It’ll make cloning websites a breeze. For example, to clone a WordPress Site, all you need to do is sign up with BlogVault Staging. It will clone your site in under a few minutes.

I think you need to be concentrated on some other aspects instead of this. Make your web site as main site and stop worrying about clones.
Make sure you have fresh content added constantly to your your blog. That is always a good idea to have unique content. In this case most SE will consider your web site as main site and will prioritize it .

From technical perspective, maybe you can try set a honeypot, and when detected some bot, you show it gibberish article or even punycode character, which looks like normal, but in reality, they are totally different thing.

But I think I maybe wrong, because a bot scrape HTML, but content on the page, so it scrapes the real content.

I don't think that's possible.
If the site is available for the people, it will be able to be cloned
Exactly.


You can make it harder, BUT; if the browser can parse the HTML, so can a bot. Don't waste your time, OP. :)
