Prohibit direct linking to your site

categories:

Sick of people direct linking ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_linking ) images from your site ?

Use this under an .htaccess file or your apache configuration (modrewrite needed)

This one would display the image owner.jpg : RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*myspace.com.*$ [NC] RewriteRule .*.(gif|jpg|jpeg|swf|png)$ http://www.site.be/images/owner.jpg [NC]

This one would block direct linking, at all : RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.*myspace.com.*$ [NC] ReWriteRule .*.(gif|png|jpg|jpeg|swf)$ - [F]
