This is the magic code which is using on our blog, because we are sharing guides where readers need to copy some codes like CSS, HTML, JavaScript, etc and same time we don’t allow our readers to copy other text area of blog post except specific CODES/Text which we have allowed to copy. This is possible with little CSS Coding.

/*—– Disable Text Selection with CSS Code by MBG—-*/
.post blockquote {
-webkit-user-select: text !important;
-moz-user-select: text !important;
-ms-user-select: text !important;
user-select: text !important;
body {
-webkit-user-select: none !important;
-moz-user-select: -moz-none !important;
-ms-user-select: none !important;
user-select: none !important;

Important: In the above CSS code we have enabled the copy/selection of text/code we post using blockquotes by enabling .post blockquote but it may not work for you if your template is using different CSS class for blockquote for e.g., Our template using .blockquote where your template may be using .post-body blockquote. So in that case you need to replace .post blockquote with .post-body blockquote or blockquote in above CSS code.  If you do not share any codes or content than just copy paste this little piece of CSS code to disable all text area on your blog

/*—– Disable Text Selection with CSS Code by MBG—-*/

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

Benefits of using CSS rather than JavaCript?

  1. The JavaScript Code slow down Blog loading speed which can effect our rank in search engines and CSS Codes do not lower the speed of your Blog/Website.
  2. When we use JavaScript for this function, Do you know what does a copy cat do? Simply disable the JavaScript inside browsers and reload the page. Then our JavaScript code does not working and a copy cat can simply select the text and copy it and in other side when we use CSS Coding there is no option to stop CSS coding to load. Some excerpt users can do this but expert users rarely do that.
