āž¤ CSS code

body {
-webkit-user-select: none!important; /* Safari */
-moz-user-select: -moz-none!important; /* Firefox */
-ms-user-select: none!important; /* Internet Explorer/Edge */
user-select: none!important;

Now text selection is disabled entirely on your Blogger website. 

If you don’t find the </b:skin> tag then you can add the CSS code in the additional CSS section of your theme. Or add a <style> tag and paste it above the </body> tag. 

Before adding this code, take a backup of your theme file for safety and easy restoration.

Now how can you exclude certain areas and allow users to copy the content?. You can easily do that by using the Class element. 

Just right-click on the element and click on inspect to check the CSS class of the element on which you want to exclude. 

Here, I am excluding the blockquote, so that users can copy/ paste text from this element only. 

-webkit-user-select: text !important;
-moz-user-select: text !important;
-ms-user-select: text !important;
user-select: text !important;

Now paste this code just above the 1st code used in this method. Here you can replace any other class or id of elements in your Blogger website. 

Note: If you are facing trouble in finding the ]]></b:skin> tag you can paste the CSS code just above the closing body tag by using the style tag. Just add the CSS code in this format.

<style> body {
-webkit-user-select: none !important;
-moz-user-select: -moz-none !important;
-ms-user-select: none !important;

#2: Disable text selection using Javascript

You can also disable the copy-paste function in your blogger website using Javascript code. 

Here, users can copy the text from blog posts easily but can’t paste the whole text in Notepad or any other text editor. 

Just Paste the Javascript code just above the </body> tag in your theme file. 

$('body').bind('copy cut drag drop', function (e) { e.preventDefault(); });

Method 3: Disable Right-Click

Another commonly employed method to discourage copying is by disabling the right-click context menu. By preventing the default behavior of the right-click event, you can prevent users from accessing options like “Copy.”

 <script> document.addEventListener('contextmenu', function (e) {

However, similar to the previous methods, this approach can be bypassed by determined users who know alternative ways to copy content.

I recommend the CSS method as it is easily customizable and doesn’t affect the page speed and provides better protection.
