Door knob damaging drywall

When my front entry door is opened all the way, it bangs against the wall and damages the drywall. The obvious solution is a door stop but I have hardwood floors and the door stop just slides along the floor and doesn't stop the door. I really don't want to tape the door stop or use adhesive to make it stick to the floor, so is there anything I can put on the wall in the form of padding that will stop the door.

They make door stops which stick to the wall. I bought my last set at Menards but big blue or big orange should carry something like that as well.

Yeah, this is about what I have:

They sell stops that slide onto the top hinge pin, others that are screwed into the baseboard.
The uglest ones are just a round piece of plastic that sticks to the wall.

Don't know why you wouldn't be able to put a door stopper on the baseboard.

They also make stops that screw to the floor which would leave a small easy hole to repair hole.

This looks like a good option. I've seen these before, not sure why I didn't think of it.

Thanks to everyone
