One of my customers had a small challenge for me as far as someone starting an underground site so to speak, that post known passwords to a particular ebook or all her ebooks.
This is how I solved it and feel it's worth sharing with everyone: Go to the User Interface and disable the Password button on the toolbar, disable the Pop-up menu on right click also. (I believe in the 4.21 version you will be able to change the contents of the right click, if so, remove the Enter Password option from it.)
Now a person has no choice but to pay for the book, whether they already have the password or not because the only place they can enter the password is on the password page that they go to once they have paid.
OK, if I disable the right-click pop-up and the Password-Button, what's in the case of somebody crashing her/his machine and loosing the unlocked version. They would download the eBook again, but how could they enter their already purchased password?
The idea sounds good, and I've read all the past comments in this page about the idea of disabling the password-entry window. I'm curious to know as to how one could enter the password in the first place, if all the options for entering the password are deactivated in the compiled e-book.
I started to use an invisible 3x3 image somewhere in the unlocked pages that links to ##ENTERPASSWORD(). This made it possible for some users to enter the password as there was a problem with the sequence of purchase --> getting their PWD --> entering the PWD
Not quite secure but hard to find, if you change the place for that image regularly :-)
