how to block things(screenshots, rollbacks, and skips)

Hi, i just started renpy.
But i don't want people skip just to watch endings.
I wonder how to block screenshots, rollbacks or skips.

thank you!

Why do you want to block all those things? I can kind of understand that you want people to read the story the way you intended it instead of skipping anything, but you can't guarantee that that will happen even if you disable the skip function. I'm not sure very many people even skip through things just to see the end anyway. If they're not interested in the story, they'll probably just stop reading rather than continue to read bits and pieces of it. If anything, you would only be inconveniencing people who accidentally deleted their saves or something and just want to skip back to where they were. And for the other features, rollbacks are important for if you realize you might have misread the previous line or something and you want to double-check it, and I can't imagine any reason you wouldn't want people to take screenshots that they might share with their friends, thereby giving you free advertising.
