Plagiarism is a major problem for bloggers not only with content being copied but also images being used without permission or credit given.There are some steps you can take to try stop images you created or photos you own being used in such a way like using a watermark but this is only a little effective.One useful tool I have found is a "Reverse Image Search" which allows you to upload an image, the image is scanned and search results are shown for where else the image has been used online.

The site in question is TinEye and it has scanned over seven billion images to test your image against to find matches.Using an identification technology also used bu Google Image search TinEye will scan your image and quickly compare it to images in their database.

It's perhaps not going to be the final solution to image plagiarism but it can help Bloggers in the fight to get credit for their work.Have you tried it ?

While working on a blog we decided to use the home page for navigation only.So we would have a static home page with a number of sections but no blog posts would be displayed.This however lead to a ugly message being displayed at the bottom of the page with the text "No Posts" on a grey background.You can see a screenshot of how the message looked below :

There was no need for this message on the site I was working on nor is there I think on any blog but it can be quickly removed and here is how.
