ScrapeBreaker Plugin for WordPress

ScrapeBreaker Plugin for WordPress protects your blog from frames and scrapers.


A combination of frame-breaker and scraper protection. Protect your website content from both frames and server-side scraping techniques. If either happens, visitors will be redirected to the original content.

Website scraping comes in two forms: 1) sites that place your content in frames on their site, and 2) server-side scripts that get the contents of your page and insert them into another page using, PHP, ASP, etc, making it look like the scraper site created the content.

Also some well-known sites display a bar with their content above your content, rob you of traffic, and skew the look and feel of your page. Anyone remember the DiggBar? Yeah.

Other scrapers just outright jack your site content. Well, that’s over now.

This plugin is better than other any frame-breaker plugins out there. Other frame-breakers will only test to see if your site is framed or not. This one will test to see if your content is present on a different domain, and if so, will redirect to the original content’s URL. Also, uses X-Frame-Options in HTTP headers to block content from showing in frames on other web domains.

The plugin won’t activate the protection features in the WordPress Admin area or if a registered user is navigating your site while logged in.


Try it and see for yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I set an option to just use the JavaScript Frame Breaker (redirect) and not use the X-Frame-Options HTTP header?

Yes, the option was added in version 1.1. Just check the option on the Settings page and click ‘Save Changes’.

If you don’t want slow your site down by adding additional database calls during page loads, you can set this option with a constant in the wp-config.php file. If you’re not familiar with editing this file, then don’t edit it. If you are, add these 2 lines to your wp-config.php file (before the line where it says to stop editing):

define( 'RSSB_OVERRIDE', true );
define('RSSB_JS_ONLY', true );

Or if just want the speed improvement, but don’t want to use that option:

define( 'RSSB_OVERRIDE', true );
define( 'RSSB_JS_ONLY', false );

Keep in mind that this completely overrides anything you set in the Settings page, and we’re not responsible if you break your site when you edit this file. (As always, back it up first.)
