    Hello all,

    Having a problem with hotlink protection.
    Its enabled on my site
    I enter the domains i want to be able to have full access
    I click activate, it saves fine and I look in my htaccess file in my public_html folder and see that changes have been implemented

    However it doesnt work, other domains, etc can still hotlink
    I followed this tutorial when i did it http://www.crucialp.com/resources/t...als/x2/enabling-hotlink-protection-cpanel.php

    Any ideas, I do have another htaccess file that is in my blog installation folder and that one isnt altered but do i really need to do it there?

    From what I understand this should be simple. And I am pretty sure that the htaccess file is working cause I use permalinks in wordpress and i am pretty sure they access that file

    Ideas?

    Thanks

    It probably would be helpful if you could post the .htaccess file contents here for us to help you better.
